Union officials lashed out at Metro for not implementing safety improvements after a string of accidents.
John Moore remains on life support after he was struck by a train on the blue and yellow lines. The veteran employee was working in the shaft between National Airport and Bradock Road Thursay morning.
Jackie Jeter heads the local Amalgamated Transportation Union. She says worker morale remains low because Metro hasn't heeded the safety improvements her union's suggested. "I think Metro listens but I don't believe the improvements are being made fast enough," says Jeter.
Jeter says her union raises safety concerns with Metro any time an accident occurs. It's been a long summer for Metro --more than 10 people have been killed and dozens have been injured, most in the June 22nd crash.
Metro has released no further details on the accident.
