He will be having an arbitration at the MTA-MUNI on Monday October 17, 2011 at 12:30 PM
at Market and Van Ness at their headquarters.
He has also spoken out against the concession bargaining engaged in by the Mayor, the Democratic
party politicians and the SFLC labor council/PEC/TWU 250 A leadership. They are also presently
pushing a reactionary attack on public workers and retirees with propositions C pushed by Mayor Lee
with the support of SF billionaire Warren Hellman. Another reactionary proposition D pushed by Jeff Adachi
with the support of San Francisco billionaire Michael Moritz is also on the ballot.
Instead of making San Francisco's 24 billionaires pay for this crisis these politicians are attacking
the transit workers, public service workers and education workers who defend our public services
and education.
Cecilia Jaroslawski, a SF City planner who was illegally fired along with other senior city planners
by the San Francisco Planning Department in collusion with the San Francisco Human Resources Director
Micki Callahan because of their age and seniority. The discriminatory firing was called a "prima facia"
case by former Civil Service Commission Vice Chair Don Casper. She won her job back without back
pay in her arbitration but the fight to stop discrimination against all city workers continues.

Senior SF city workers are being harassed and illegally being driven out of their
jobs by city managers and bosses who want to bring in workers who have no seniority and who will
not enforce the union contracts. City workers, retirees and the public will be demanding an outside
investigation at the San Francisco Civil Service Commission meeting on Monday October 17 at 2:00 PM
at San Francisco City Hall Room 400. The need to protect the merit system and the civil service system
which is under frontal attack and these assaults must be challenged.
It is time to stop, discrimination, union busting and the attack on whistleblowers in San Francisco
