WorkWeek examines the continued criminal cover-up of the Hunters Point shipyard development where health and safety whistlelbowers were fired by Tetra Tech and the falsification of testing by the company which was concealed by San Francisco politicians including Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Senator Diane Feinstein and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom.
We interview David Anton, the lawyer for 6 whistleblowers who worked at the Hunters Point shipyard for Tetra Tech and SEIU 1021 steward Cheryl Thornton who worked at the Potrero Hill Health Center and was illegally removed for whistleblowing about health and safety issues and the failure to properly take care of people in the community. She also discussed the systemic racism in the city and county of San Francisco.
Next, we look at the growing working class protests and strikes in Brazil against the Temer government and privatization. We interview Fabio Bosco who is with the Sao Paulo Metro Union and with the independent labor federation Conlutas. He discusses the truckers strike and the privatization of the nationalized oil company Petrobras and how this is affecting the working people of Brazil
