Verizon Partners with the Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and the city of Boston Public Schools to “Fight Bullying.”

 

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/verizon-foundation-partners-with-boston-public-schools-to-ensure-students-stay-safe-online-100990779.html

 

Verizon stated in the article that: Because the Verizon Foundation recognizes how important it is that students understand their responsibility to behave appropriately and exhibit safe behavior online, it donated $15,000 to the school district’s Cyber Safety Campaign to support its Cyber Mentor program.

 

Acting appropriately Verizon stated:  well tell this to LeeAnne St. Pierre a single mother that worked out of New Bedford Massachusetts.  She was inappropriately touched by her boss a (a male well connected manager) and when she reported it, she was advised in writing by Verizon that: “He only touched you once!”  LeeAnne was placed back into the hands of her perpetrator, increased harassment and later terminated for reporting this sexual harassment claim within Verizon.

 

Tell this to two other female black managers that were being harassed racially and went to Verizon and Verizon told them if they decided to take the next step in pushing the issue, they would be blackballed like Neal Dias, and their careers would be over, nice way to threaten and stop workplace racism and bullying. 

 

Tell this to me who has suffered greatly for acting appropriate and trying to resolve bullying in the workplace and launched an internal investigation only to have Verizon respond like this:  The investigation yield that Benvie had a reputation of being a bully and an equal opportunity offender.  Race was not an issue with Benvie’s condescending and obnoxious behavior and inappropriate comments to almost everyone that he had contact with.  McGovern (Verizon EEO Officer) had substantiated complaints from Caucasian technicians concerning Benvie’s offensive management style.”

 

This is Verizon’s was of saying that if you bully everyone equally, then it’s legal and Verizon does not have to worry about any Civil Actions.

 

I was further harasses, bullying, endured racial harassment and comments, discriminated against made to now look like a trouble maker when just earlier I was a shining star within Verizon.

 

Tell this to the thousands of Verizon employees that have emailed me, called me, posted on my Facebook or blogs that Verizon; fully understands what it is to act appropriately in any environment. 

 

For Verizon to donate any amount of money to an anti-bullying cause and speak anywhere or to anyone about bullying is like – William J. Simons one of the founders in the history of the KKK to speak at an NAACP Convention.   Verizon has no business speaking about something they whole heartily condone.

I am going to send the Mayor and the Boston and the Boson Public School Superintendent a letter attaching my story about Verizon on just exactly how they do accept bullying, racism and sexual harassment.

 

I will post the addresses below of the Mayor, and the head of the Boston School Department, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald newspapers. I urge you all from all over the Country who are employed at Verizon OR not,  to write in and please tell him about the ruthless and bullying company like Verizon and how they have destroyed your lives and the lives of your family members.

Please tell him to not allow our children to listen to hypocrites that condone abusive and violate acts, and not protect their employees.

 

Let them know that Verizon’s own Ethics Department receives over 104,000 unethical complaints each year. This is about 49% of Verizon’s employees complain of mistreatment each year (Verizon’s own statement in a Federal Deposition in spring of 2011).

 

The world needs to know Verizon hurt so many of their employees and their families each day, don’t let them but their silence. tatement in federal depositions in march of 2011), and it gets wiped under the table allowing employees to fend for themselves.

My state mayor and our kids in this great state have to stay away from the perpetrators of Verizon, bringing fake gifts in monetary values deceiving of what Verizon really is – lyres and bullies.

Help me tell the mayor and the school department break their ties and do not allow Verizon to speak about bullying.

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.
