Bullying – Sad Story

Over the course of time, I have spoken to people all over the country personally, as well as received emails from all over the world.

Each and every story has touched my heart, and kept an impression in my mind. But over this last week, I heard a few stories that have kept me up at night.

I have heard from professionals, well educated, incredibly successful, but dying inside. When they decided to challenge the bullying that was taken place, in their work environments, it cost them their lives and careers.

I heard of the same feelings that I felt at one time. I heard them say they feel dead inside, even though their body was moving. They lost their confidence, and family life. They were no longer happy and so emotional drained.

One woman from California, made me cry when she told me, that she purchased her plot / grave site, just recently as she does not think she can handle the emotional trauma any longer from being a victim of workplace bullying. She fells that she is too old, to get the paying job she once had, and will suffer too much financially to regain her life back.

The other, is so hurt by the school department in Lawrence Mass, whom preaches Anti-Bullying to kids, but allows the teachers to have been bullied by the former Principal for all too many years. Her sad story about giving up, on life and family destroyed.

Another told me about her son taking his life in the later 20’s as it was related to being bullied.

Since, October when I had launched my world wide campaign to expose Verizon for what they did to me, my life has taken on a different path!

I pray each day for all the victims, in the world (past, present and future) who have had to suffer from the inexcusable and immoral behaviors, for which companies refuse to accept responsibility for.

I have been working with attorneys that I know and other people to help me launch something huge, in my continued campaign. One day, laws will help to hold companies and people accountable on Workplace Bullying – mark my word!

It is time, and that time is now.

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

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.
