Pres. Jackie Jeter Statement on the Election of Jennifer Wexton
"The members of ATU Local 689 worked tirelessly with the Wexton campaign because we believe in her platform and leadership. We are very proud of our collective achievement. Now that someone who seeks to decrease wages, attack earned pensions, and ignore factual information at Metro no longer represents the people of Virginia's 10th district, we have many reasons to look forward to a positive future for our members and working people throughout this region and country with Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton."
Barbara Comstock lied
Forestville, Md. – October 11, 2018: Last night, Virginia 10th District Congresswoman Barbara Comstock made a statement to the press where she blatantly lied about the arbitration decision to rehire a Track Inspector Supervisor to Metro when she falsely stated that he approved falsified inspection reports. The person making false statements is her.
An independent arbitrator ruled that the track inspector supervisor did not approve falsified reports, but was “[scapegoated] by the Authority for a widespread failing,” where WMATA management chose to give track inspectors poor training and instruction. As a lawmaker, Mrs. Comstock should know the importance of due process, yet she chose to ignore it to further her political agenda that will soon be over. Read entire release here.
