National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC at the National Press Club

Held on October 15th 2012

This past Monday I had the opportunity to speak at the National Workplace Bullying press conference in Washington DC.  I was honored to have been invited to attend and speak at the prestigious event conducted by Dr. Gary Namie “The President of Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI).”

National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC  October 15th 2012

Dr. Namie is heading a National Healthy Workplace Bill to help ensure that one day there will be healthier workplaces throughout this country is indeed achieved.  The bill in is presently in 21 states and it is called “The Healthy Workplace Bill.”  With the help of Dr. Namie and so many hardworking advocates all across this country, one day with great anticipation we will see this bill, placed into law.  Of course this this cannot be achieved without the help from our politicians.

I sit here today 48 hours later from this exhausting trip, feeling to reward for my historical contribution to this very important cause.  I had the opportunity talk about what Verizon had done to me, and so many other employees.  I spoke about the truths if how we all have suffered ruthless and unacceptable attacks from this unethical company.  I could never tell 8.5 years of living hell, in 5 – 10 minutes time but I tried to highlight the facts.  The video will be posted on YouTube shortly and I will release it as well.  Future interviews, conferences and other post will continue as I move forward in this cause.

After you leave such an event, and head back home on an 8 hour train ride home, you have so much time to think.  I thought about what I had said, and wished I could say more.  I thought about the stories that I have heard, and shed more tears for these victims who are in so much pain.  I thought about the people that I had sat with, only to know they suffer internally to an extent no person on earth can truly define.  I thought about the ones that had so much courage and leadership to say I will suffer no more abuse at work and refused to no longer tolerate these abusive behaviors any longer.

I thought about coming back home knowing there will be piles of bills that cannot be possibly paid because of the loss of my income at Verizon.  I thought about my health eroding from inside, and I have tirelessly fight for justice.  Total destruction of my life, because I did what I was supposed to, and was to stand up to injustice at VERIZON, and then I became a target for doing God’s work.

I thought about life and what it now means to so many.

During that day in Washington DC, as I sat there watching so many people that day.  As they walked by me at the train station, on the train, on the streets, in their cars, working, I saw very few smiles.  I saw very few people loving what they did, or were they were going.  How many people become robots of life, just synchronized into just going about life!

How many of those people I saw with my eyes in 24 hours, have suffered from hostile work environments, being bullied, harassed at work or other inappropriate behaviors at all.  How many hate the jobs or wish they could love what they do.

Monday’s conference on workplace bullying issues was simply an historical event.  I believe that advocates fighting for this healthy workplace bill are people with tremendous heart and courage.  They know the future of our children lives in the chosen career fields depend on these hard working advocates, to set in motion a protection that ensures a safer and healthier workplace.

May God continue to give them all the strength it takes to defeat evil and restore one’s life and dignity in the workplace?

As Verizon would say: Making Progress Every Day!

“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.
