A labor community rally was held to defend Richmond IFPTE Local 21 chief Stan Feury who was retaliated against for defending City of Richmond library financial worker Tracie Plummer who blew the whistle on former corrupt Human Resources Director Heather Knight. Knight was defended by Richmond City manager Bill Lindsay who is now supporting the retaliation against Stan Feury for supporting Plummer. Tens of thousands of dollars are now being spent on outside lawyers and city funds to retaliate against public worker whistleblowers and to silence and intimidate the city employees in Richmond.

Richmond Rally To Defend IFPTE Chief Steward San Feury From Retaliation, Bullying And Union Busting
Richmond Workers Rally In Defense of Stan Feury IFPTE Local 21 Chief steward who has been retaliated against for defending City of Richmond Whistleblower Stacie Plummer. Richmond's city manager who helped cover-up the criminal corruption of former Human Resources Director Heather Knight decided to punish Feury with two weeks off for comments made at a Human Rights Commission meeting.
Absolutely no disciplinary action was taken against Heather Knight by Lindsay and he allowed her to retire after stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the city. This is also attack on the union members and particularly IFPTE Local 21. The chief executive officer of IFPTE Local 21 Bob Muscat and his operative Bob Brittan. Previously Brittan had told IFPTE Local 21 members that if they did not like how he was representing them they could quit the Local.
After the rally there was a hearing of the City of Richmond Personnel Board and after many speakers supported Feury the board dropped the discipline to three days. They also passed a new policy against workplace bullying.
