10/19 SF Rally And Speak Out On Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week
SF City Hall Rally & Speak Out Against Workplace Bullying
October 19, 2015 5:00 PM San Francisco City Hall Polk and McAllister St. SF
National Freedom From Workplace Bullies is held every year in the United States to publicize the epidemic of workplace bullying in private industry and public service jobs.
All workers should have the right to work in a safe healthy environment without being bullied. Workplace bullying which is not illegal in California forces many workers to go on to workers comp and disability thereby harming them and their families and in some cases destroying their lives and their careers.
Workplace bullying is also used to harass and in- timidate those workers who support unions at non- union work locations and speak out against racial and sexual discrimination in the workplace. Whis- tleblowers are also targeted who stand up for the public.
The scapegoating and bullying against working people and their unions is a growing menace to the public and all working people as well as creating an extremely unhealthy society.
Teachers and other public workers also have faced harassment and bullying on the job including blaming public workers for work issues while pub- lic services are being privatized.
This rally is part of a national campaign to pass legislation in every state to make it illegal to bully and harass workers at their jobs and workers both union and non-union in San Francisco need to be free of such behavior.
