The election of the most reactionary president in the history of the United States is a threat to all working people, unions, minorities and youth. Tump has announced he will round up 2 to 3 million immigrant workers and they have plans to privatize all public services and destroy organized labor. He is already appointing neo-facists, anti-semites and racists like Stephen K. Bannon to top positions. This is a dangerous situation for all working people in the US and around the world. Charter privatizers and union busters are also on a rampage to total destroy public education, the post office and the question is where are our unions and the labor movement?
This forum will report on the what happened in the election and what working people and the unions need to do to defend ourselves including protecting public services, stopping privatization and defending against the epidemic of racist attacks on African Americans, Latinos, Muslims, native Amerians and Asians.

San Francisco postal bosses and managers have a long history of workplace bullying and even violence against postal workers.

Stop Workplace Bullying-Speakout & Rally At SF City Hall For A Healthy Workplace
https://youtu.be/gRy7hkKolrU
On October 17, 2016 as part of Bullyfree Workplace Week, bay area workers spoke out about the epidemic of workplace bullying and how it is affecting them on the job. This has created a toxic workplace for many workers in San Francisco and throughout the United States.
The rally which took place in front of San Francisco City Hall included many CCSF workers who talked about the conditions at work and the refusal of management to rectify the systemic bullying going on. Workers also discussed racist incidents on the job and the role this playing in harassment and bullying.
Also a statement was read by Federal OSHA investigator and lawyer Darrell Whitman who was investigating retaliation against whistleblowers at the Whistleblower Protection Program and he and other AFGE union members were bullied and fired for trying to do their jobs. He also tried to handle the cases of bullied Wells Fargo workers but the agency refused to investigate and defend Wells Fargo workers.
The event was endorsed by SEIU 1021 San Francisco COPE, Stop Work Place Bullying Group, United Public Workers For Action and Bullyfree Workplace.
