Verizon Book

Verizon Book:

 

October 1, 2013 was my due date to turn in a complete and finished copy of my book about Verizon and Workplace Bullying.  My task is complete, and the book is finished, but there is an issue.

Two weeks ago I was reading over my book, and I began to see so much hatred towards my former bosses Paul McCarthy and Patty Regan and others at Verizon including Verizon itself, for what they did to my family and I.  I did not like what I saw in my own book at times. 

The pain my family and I have endured has been beyond description, and as much as I have thought about retaliation in a major form (from time-to-time) towards these individuals.  But I am thankful for the person that I have become over the years to not have not acted out on my thoughts.  I know what I credit that too is my family.  Whenever I have any thoughts of anger that crosses my mind, I look at them and I don’t ever want to lose what I have, and have my freedom taken from me.

So I saw so much hatred, and the way it was expressed in my book made me upset at the person they made me become.

So, what I did was contact my publisher, and postpone the deadline for a few more months.  I want to remove myself from this book, take time to spend with my family, revise and improve my story then send out positive message from the hell that I endured at Verizon.

My original goal when I decided to write this book, was to tell my story of what Verizon put us through as a family, the failure in the judicial system in every way when it comes to issues like this, the emotional and financial hardship we went through and how we as a country and corporations can help to change this problem.  I eventually want High Schools, Colleges / Universities, Ethics Educators and Corporations to learn from Verizon.  I want them to institute my book as part of an educations format as well.  And eventually I will get this to a movie producer to further enhance this story.  So in order for my message to be influential I have to do this right.

I thank all of you for sharing so many of your stories with me, and like I promised many will be in the book.  I wish I could place them all in there buy with over 1,000 stories and many thousands of comment, it’s impossible, but they all will be on the Verizon Bulling site that I am having created for 2014. 

I am glad to state that I just received notice that my second book will be in the stores in two weeks. 

Please expect this Verizon book in the stores soon, and thank you as always for all your support and prayers!

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.
