There is an epidemic of workplace bullying going on throughout the country. Many of those public workers
who have been bullied on the job have been retaliated against for whistleblowing about financial malfeasance,
corruption and misuse of public funds and services.
These workers have been targeted for doing their jobs as public workers who are serving the public.
This forum will look at these cases of workplace bullying, whistleblowers and how managers, supervisors
and some politicians have helped not only cover up the malfeasance and corruption but actually supported the
targeting and retaliation against the public workers.

Speakers:
Dr. Derek Kerr, Whistleblower at Laguna Honda Hospital over financial malfeasance. While Kerr and another
doctor were fired the person who misused funds is still a manager at the hospital.

Stacie Plummer, City of Richmond Library worker who blew the whistle on the Human Resources Director who
was using city offices and city workers for her business. Plummer is now being targeted and retaliated by
the Richmond City Manager Bill Lindsay for being a whistleblower and other workers who spoke out are also
being targeted.

Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 General Hospital worker and COPE co-chair has fought to defend whistleblowers and
campaigned for the labor movement to stop workplace bullying on the job.

Sean Gillis, Oakland Fire Department IFPTE Local 21 Oakland Unit M Political Director, Alameda Labor Council Delegate
and EMT trainer whistleblew on outsourcing and privatization of public service jobs and has faced retaliation.

Linda Cooks, Martin Luther King Middle School teacher who was bullied out of the school for opposing physical abuse and
a cover-up by the principal Natalie Eberhard and assistant principal Anthony Braxton and a cover-up by Assistant Superintendent
Jeanie Pon.

The Stop Workplace Bullying Group was organized to defend workers public and private who are being bullied on the job
and want a safe and healthy workplace. We also support legislation in California to prohibit workplace bullying.
