OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program investigator and lawyer Darrell Whitman who is also an AFGE steward and delegate to the San Francisco Labor Council is interviewed by KPFA WorkWeek radio about the systemic corruption of OSHA, the Department of Labor DOL, the Office of Special Counsel and the Government Accountability Project GAP which has been representing him in his legal case. After more than three years the OSC issued a statement finding there is a substantial likelihood the disclosure that Whitman made to the OSC in January 2015 reflected violations of law, rule, or regulation, gross mismanagement, a gross waste of government funds, an abuse of authority by federal managers, and a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety. Part of his charge is that former Department of Labor Secretary Tom Perez who is now the national chair of the Democratic Party was personally involved in criminally obstructing an investigation of his removal from OSHA. One of his cases was Michael Madry who worked for Test America and was bullied and fired for exposing the criminal falsification of asbestos testing at Hunter Point shipyard and Treasure Island.

This interview was done on 7/16/18 by KPFA WorkWeek radio host and investigative journalist Steve Zeltzer.
