Two SF MTA Muni TWU 250A drivers will report on retaliation against them for making Ca Osha health and safety complaints about dangerous buses that might harm the public and workers. Although it is illegal to retaliate against health and safety whistleblowers apparently the MTA management and Mayor Ed Lee thinks it's ok to target workers who speak out about these issues.
