Verizon 2013

As the year came to a close I thought about the tough road for my family and I have had.  We have sacrificed so much, but we will march into 2013 with hope for justice against Verizon.   There is not a day that goes by that I don’t look back on the mistreatment I had to endure but I know soon I will have my chance to tell the world what happened.

My father passed away in July of 2012, and I can still hear him tell me how proud he was of me.  He knew that I could not allow someone or a company treat me in the manner in which Verizon did, and just walk away.  He knew the sacrifices we have had to make because of what Verizon intentionally did to my family and me.  He knew how bad we were hurting and only wanted our pain to go away.  He wanted to be alive, to one day see my family longer having to struggle.  He also wanted to be alive for my trial against Verizon, but he never made that day.  There is one thing I do know and that is, he will be there in spirit.

On March 11, 2013 my trial will begin against Verizon.  It will take place in the Federal Court House in Boston Massachusetts.  This day is something that I have been waiting for, for too long now.  This day will be the day that my voice will be heard, and a day that justice will hopefully be granted to my family and me.  Either way, my dignity will still be intact and my road to enhancing laws to help workplace bullying victims will take on another role.  I will also continue to be the voice for other Verizon employees helping them to seek justice on many unethical, immoral and conspiracies they have covered up.    

I can never be denied that I gave it my all, in the pursuit to justice, against one of the most powerful companies in the world.  A company that told me to my face, that this day will never happen.  They told me that justice will not be in my future simply because they have more money, power and resources to deny me of justice.  I knew I could not be silent no longer when I saw the pain in so many lives.  I just could not walk away, and let that happen! 

One of my all-time favorite people to have ever lived was Dr. Martin Luther King.  He once said:

Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about things that matter.

–          Martin Luther King

So as of Tuesday I began to dedicate 100% to preparing for my trial.  I took a mental break for some time now as it was well needed, but now the journey towards justice will begin. 

I wanted to let all the people that have supported me throughout this journey that I’m not going away.  My post will be limited on all the Facebook pages, and blogs only because my time is limited preparing for my trial.  If at any time you truly need me, just send me an email or just call.  I will only post very important information or changes to major issues until the trial is over. 

A week prior to the trial, I will send out a reminder to all of you as many stated that would like to attend the trial.  I will also send out a press release as well, to get the trial covered as this case will set precedence to so many within Verizon as well as outside of the company.

I thank you all, and Happy New Year – May God Bless all of us!

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.
