Enough is Enough – Stop Workplace Bullying

ENOUGH is ENOUGH

“Stop Workplace Bullying”

     The time has come, where we all have to join hands in stopping an internal virus called, “Workplace Bullying.”

Forget color, forget age, forget religious beliefs, forget sexual preferences, and join hands and unite together for a greater cause.  Bullying sometimes has nothing to do with race.  It cane be a black on black, white on white, men on men, and women on women – issue.  It is employee on employee, and management on management as well.

Bullies are an internal terrorist, attacking the moral of our character, and society from the inside.  They are destroying good people, and their lives.  Just as we, as a country dominate in containing world wide terrorism, we need to strengthen our cause and focus on luring out the bullies, in each and every workplace in this country.  We need to hold them accountable.

An active bill in many states across the country called: “The Healthy Workplace Bill.”  This bill will equalize the playing field against Workplace Bullying.  This bill if we can progress and move forward on it, – will save lives!

This International Campaign, “Enough is Enough – Stop Workplace Bullying” started by a Verizon employee called, “Mr. Douglas Freeman –from New Jersey and myself (Neal W. Dias)” is to improve work environments all over the world, starting with Verizon.

It is time for us all to step up to the plate, and make this an all time priority.

We forget that statistics are people, and people that matter.

  • The U.S. Department of Labor produced a fact sheet on numerous events in the workplace.  July 2010 they concluded that over a 5 year span, from 2004 – 2008, there were an average of 564 work-related homicides that occurred each year in the United States of America.  About 4 out of 5 homicide victims in 2008 were male
  • The U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health states that Homicide is the second highest cause of death on the job after motor vehicle accidents.  That amounts to every 3 cases to 10,000 workers.  Over 2 million workers are assaulted each year and 2, 000 people are murdered.
  • A 2007 national survey by Zogby International and Workplace Institute found that:
  • 37% of workers have experienced workplace bullying.
  • 62% of employees who received complaints about workplace bullying either ignore the problem or made it worse.
  • 64% of bullying targets eventually are pushed out of their jobs.
  • 73% of workplace bullies are supervisors.

– In the spring of 2011, I was in a Federal Deposition with Verizon, and they admitted, under oath that they receive over 104,000 EEO Complaints a year.  That comes out to 8,666 a month, and 2,000 a week, 400 a day.  Why so many?

Verizon allowed the abusive behavior to foster, and become norm, now it is out of control.

The people all over the world that are complaining of bullies are not sissy’s, they are not pansies’ they are not people that aren’t afraid to do anything that they have to, including being violent themselves.

But they are people that choose to take a non-violent activist way of doing what is right for themselves and their families and many others.  So they are individuals that have no problem standing up for themselves, if they have to protect themselves in a violent manner, but they choose not do.

They are individuals that follow the law, based on the law is what society ask of to do and that is to be non-violent when making a stand. These individuals whether children or adults, make a stand up against bullying, is making a stand are doing what’s right for the best interest of all.

I myself had the potential and ability to act out in a violent manner and harm the individuals that harassed, bullied, discriminated against, racially tormented me and targeted me, if I had to but choose not to.  I decided to make a stand utilizing the proper chain of command, and within the law in the best interest of my family and myself.  I refused to have to sit behind bars of kill myself, because of acting out in a violent manner to resolve these immoral issues. I choose the right path.  I choose what I had to for all the right reasons and has still been denied justice eight years later.

So I credit all the individuals that are standing as advocates all across this world against bullies, so we can change society so people can go to work each day and make a reasonable income to support their families.

Life is stressful enough, no one needs to be abused and tormented in the process.

Search in the internet for; “The Healthy Workplace Bill,” located your state, and hit the “HWCE-Z Letter” emailing tool, to contact your sponsoring lawmakers.  This will notify them that, “Enough is Enough.”

About justiceatverizon

Neal W. Dias – Bio I am a 46 year old former U.S. Marine, who was brought up by my father, due to my mother passing away when I was 8 years old. I have five children, and a grandchild and a wonderful wife. I was born in 1965, in Fall River Massachusetts. I lived on the 2nd floor from my Grandmother. I come from a very large family Cape Verdean family. In 1973 we moved from the city, into the suburban neighborhood, a place called Swansea. It was that year when I lost my mother in an auto mobile accident. In 1984 I went into the U.S. Marines which enforced respect for one self and our Nation. After getting out of the Marines, I furthered my education and received my first degree, which was in Electrical Technology. In 1997 I was hired by Nynex (now called Verizon), as a lineman. In 2004 I was promoted to manager as I was in the process of working on my second degree in Business Management and advanced to upper management, rapidly. I was a valued leader on the Verizon Diversity Committee, and spoke at several locations. I was on the Diversity committee and was directly responsible for ensure the first ever Verizon’s Diversity Week went on without any hitches. I was awarded for my success in New York by the Verizon New England President. I was apart of other specialized organizations within Verizon to ensure my voice was heard as I stood up against Bullying, Harassment, Racism and Discrimination was not accepted with the Verizon walls. But it was in 2004 when I was promoted, I began to see Verizon employees getting bullied and tormented by Verizon Management. I did what I through was best, and tried to halt the bullying that was taking place at Verizon, then it shifted to me. After standing up against the powers to be, trying to help others I was targeted, harassed, bullied, discriminated against, endured racial harassment and eventually wrongfully terminated. I was brought up with the belief of how you treat people, is how you will be treated. It was embedded into my mind that respect was how it will be in my family. My father said, “Respect people, work hard and life will treat you kind.” This was the belief of a man who was discriminated against for so many years, because of his color, but never changed his values. I knew then, I cannot walk away like so many others that have had to endure such cruelty, and that this bullying issue is larger than me. After seven and a half years my story is still is not over as I am still in federal court in Boston Massachusetts awaiting the second summary of judgment decision. I will continue to fight for justice and my honor. I now have committed my life to help others, and started a blog page which has acquired over 13,000 readings and over 1,500 comments in only a few months. After hearing all these stories, I knew I had to do something and became an advocate for workplace bulling. This is when I stumbled upon “New York Healthy Workplace Advocates.” On April 30, 2012 I was honored to have spoken in Albany New York at the Capital a National Campaign on Workplace Bullying. I am an active Advocate to this cause, in Massachusetts. I have helped to organize many in the fight against Verizon and other companies in the war against bullying in corporate America. I have helped to guide so many to resources to guide these victims in the fight against any form of harassment or discrimination in the workplace, as this is my mission. Neal W.
