Worker In Whistleblower Suit Says "Toyota Way" Ignored At Factory

The California auto worker who is suing Toyota and others in a whistleblower lawsuit says she was merely carrying out the quality-conscious "Toyota way" in spotting defects when managers demoted her.

Katy Cameron was employed for 23 years at New United Motor
Manufacturing Inc., a joint venture between Toyota Motor Corp. and
General Motors Corp. in Fremont.

She is suing the companies in a lawsuit, filed Nov. 6 in Alameda County Superior Court.

The lawsuit accuses management at NUMMI of routinely deleting or downgrading defects that Cameron found as a certified auditor.

Cameron is seeking 45 million dollars in damages for retaliation against a whistleblower and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
