Michael Madry was a quality test assurance manager at Test America, the largest testing company in the United States. He and another manager began to raise health and safety questions when H.I.G. Capital a $17 billion dollar private equity company took over Test America and began to change the testing process to falsify asbestos and other tests on toxic materials.
They demanded that they do the asbestos tests in 20 seconds that normally took 10 to 15 minutes.
He along with his co-worker filed an OSHA complaint and were bullied, harassed and illegally fired and he as well as OSHA lawyer Darrell Whitman are challenging the failure of OSHA to protect health and safety whistleblowers.
This falsified testing also took place at the highly toxic and contaminated Hunters Point shipyard where there is a rate of over 50% asthma among the children.
Madry will be joined by environmental advocate Dr. Ray Tomkins who has been fighting to have proper testing of the dust that is being dispersed as a result of the dismantlement of the Candlestick Park. Lennar-Uban originally planned to blow up the stadium but this was stopped by labor and community opposition.

This will be an important labor community meeting to connect the dots with the criminal cover-up of testing at Bayview Hunters Point with the attack on OSHA health and safety whistleblowers.
Also speaking will be SEIU 1021 SF General Chapter Chair Brenda Barros who fought against the blowing up of the Candlestick stadium and contamination of the community.
