Dorian Maxwell, a member of TWU 250A, a health and safety advocate and union activist is under attack by the anti-labor MTA City administration and the Mayor's office. Dorian has reported serious health and safety hazards for drivers and the public to OSHA and other agencies.
He has also been injured on the job as a result of the management's callous disregard for the health and safety of the drivers. As a result of his whistle blowing and also his opposition for the reactionary Proposition G pushed by former Mayor Newsom, Sean Elsbernd, SPUR and the billionaires in San Francisco he has been framed up with a charge of "political activity" while on the job.
This political frame-up to fire Dorian Maxwell is an orchestrated effort to further intimidate SF Muni drivers from speaking out against the vicious union busting and racist attacks they have faced for opposing concession bargaining and give-backs.
It is time to call a halt to this witch hunt and put these union busters on the defensive. They are seeking to destroy city wide seniority, smash city workers pension and healthcare plans, privatize and contract out city services and destroy public workers unions in San Francisco.
