National Workplace Bullies Week and National Speaking Engagement

National Workplace Bullies Week and National Speaking Engagement

I was asked to speak at a National Press Conference and Seminar in Washington DC, right across the street from the White House at the National Press Club.  It will be on Monday October 15, 2012.  This conference is to promote the, “Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week,” which runs October 14 – 20.

I will be speaking along side of some of the most prestigious individuals that have made National impacts on bringing these issues of “Workplace Bullying” to the forefront.  I was asked personally by the President and Director of the “Workplace Bullying Institute,” Dr. Gary Namie to attend, so the honor was mine to accept his invitation.

Dr. Gary Namie began the push to enact anti-bullying laws state-by-state for the workplace in 2001 thanks to Suffolk University Professor of Law David Yamada who drafted the text of the Healthy Workplace Bill. (The text was later revised in 2009), who will also be speaking there. The original bill grew out of his seminal legal treatise on workplace bullying and the need for “status-blind harassment” laws.

Today because of Dr. Namie and many committed, compassionate, dedicated and powerful workplace bullying advocates, the bill is active in 21 States since 2003 have introduced the HWB — No laws yet enacted.  In 2013 Legislative Sessions start in January, and with the grace of God, we will soon see this bill a law.

This is such an honor for me, and proves the momentum of my story about the mistreatment I endured at Verizon.  This National Conference is for the millions of other stories like mine that are being heard all over the world.  My focus will be on issues at Verizon Communication as a victim and witness of workplace bullying.

We have no choice to continue as adults and advocates to voice our pain, and hope to change this issue within our workplaces.  If we do not make a stand now, we will only allowing our children to enter that world of unjust treatment.

This is the only way we can get our message out about “Workplace Bullying.” There is poor and misguided treatment in our workplaces and it has to end. If we do not end it now, our children will face an even more horrifying work environment when they grow up. How can we leave it up to them?

I will post updates, as it gets closer hoping that some of you have the opportunity to travel to the event.  Either way, I will post the videos and speeches on my sites.

As Verizon would say: Making Progress Every Day!

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.
