Thirteen former United Airlines flight attendants who were fired after they refused to work a flight from San Francisco International Airport to Hong Kong last summer because of a perceived security concern have filed a federal whistle-blower complaint with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

United said it investigated the incident properly and “determined there was no credible security threat.â€

As I understand it, the airline was ordered to reinstate them and pay them their outstanding salaries. The board's decision was correct.
