Status Quo - our troops deserve much more
As a life-long principle, I have always worked hard on my job to become more proficient at it. For my life to have purpose and meaning – to make a difference - has always been very important to me, as has integrity! These principles have always served me well and have been acknowledged by all previous employers. Until 2008, the same was true in the SW Test department at BAE Systems, but then all changed and these very values became a threat, and the downfall to those of us who held true to them.
Abuse of the Legal System
As the end of my case approached, my attorney, Trevor Zink stated that he learned that someone at BAE Systems had not liked me for a long time, and would see to it that I would never receive the $35000 owed to me and would destroy me in the process. Of course, I knew them to be Tom Cravens and Jim Drehs. They then completely controlled the group and ruled by fear and intimidation. No one was/is allowed to question them or talk to the outside group that comes periodically to validate the test procedures during SQT.
My attorney - Trevor Zink/Omni Law Group, LLP - said that he would provide details of BAE System's abuse of the legal system if asked.
In December 2012, I received a shocking call stating that one of the other three most experienced Test Analysts – Allen Bowron – had been found in his home lying on the floor, unable to move, having suffered a major stroke. He was found in time to save his life, but he, in his early fifties, will remain bed ridden and will require 24 hour care for the rest of his life! He said that as he was lying there, only one thought prevailed - what Jim Drehs had done!
