PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Sexual harassment and a toxic work environment—these are some of the allegations the NAACP is claiming against SEPTA.
William Harris says he always wanted to work for SEPTA, but claims when he said "No" to a lewd request from a manager his dream died.
"I refused to give fellatio behind a director's desk," Harris said.
Michelle Jones claims a now-retired SEPTA manager pressured her for sex. She refused, reported him and says she was fired.
"He asked me to do things to him in his office. He would speak bout my body and he was very retaliatory," Jones said.
Both former SEPTA workers made their stunning claims sitting next to the head of Philadelphia's NAACP who again is accusing the agency of punishing lower level workers who blow the whistle on harassment.
"We are also a team that's not going away. We are going to keep coming back to the press with more and more evidence," NAACP President Minister Rodney Muhammad said.
"He came down I was in the train. He handcuffed me to the seat," former employee Aeesha Mosley said.
Aeesha Mosley says she's a former subway cashier.
"He grabbed my throat and and assaulted me," Mosley explained.
Mosley says Michael Daniels, who is in jail on a charge he groped a girl at a city pool, pretended he was a SEPTA cop a decade ago when he assaulted her. Daniels' attorney could not comment on the claim.
She says when Daniels harassed her on the job, SEPTA refused to move her and fired her when she was too fearful to work.
"If you guys had taken me seriously, he wouldn't been able to harm or hurt anybody else," Mosley said.
Muhammad of the NAACP says he wants SEPTA's top boss to meet with the fired workers.
In a statement SEPTA writes that its met twice with Muhammad and has recently contacted him to meet again and talk about the issues he's raised. They claim he has not responded.
