At a San Francisco City Civil Service Commission meeting, city workers challenged the systemic discrimination, workplace bullying and outsourcing by CCSF Human Resources Director Micki Callahan and her managers. They are also spending hundreds of millions of dollars to outsource and privatize city jobs and targeting in particular the jobs of African American and Latino workers.
Racism, Outsourcing and Retaliation At SF Civil Service Commission With HR Director Micki Callahan

At a hearing of the San Francisco Civil Service Commission on December 17, 2018, the issue of racism, outsourcing and retaliation came to the fore. The Commission which is charged with making sure that the Human Resources Department carries out its work has allowed HR Director Micki Callahan to ignore the two SF Board of Supervisor audit hearing of racism and systemic discrimination in the city. Some leaders of SEIU 1021 challenged the bullying and racism but top officers of SEIU 1021 were a no-show at the SF Civil Service Commission and it was later learned that they were attending a holiday party at SF City Hall hosted by IFPTE Local 21. There was also no report by the Director of Human Resources Micki Callahan about the two city hearings and why many African American city workers had charged that she had been personally involved in illegally discriminating against them and allowing flagrant acts of racial discrimination in the city and county of San Francisco. Callahan and her managers have even promoted managers who have been engaged in systemic racism and violation of discrimination and in some case corruption in the City and County of San Francisco.

Linda Simon, the CCSF EEO director also denied at the hearing that the City has spent over $70 million in payments to workers who have been illegally discriminated against, their attorneys and City attorneys and legal counsel for defending these cases of illegal activity by SF City and County managers.

Workers also opposed the outsourcing and privatization of City work by EPIC program which is designed to eliminate union jobs particularly of African American and Latino workers. HR Director Micki Callahan is pushing hundreds of millions of dollars into these companies and consultants who are doing the work of City and County workers.

The hearing also exposed the massive outsourcing of city work to consultants and a program like EPIC which has a history of being used to remove African American and Latino workers from their jobs.
The hearing also illuminated the systemic bullying and retaliation in the Workers Comp division by managers who have intimidated and bullied members of IFPTE Local 21. Members are intimidated and afraid of retaliation if they report issues like the integrity of the documentation and statistics.

The city has spent millions of dollars on disability costs for workers who have been driven off their jobs by systemic workplace bullying and mobbing by Micki Callahan's Department of Human Resources.

CCSF SF Director Of Human Resources Micki Callahan was personally charged by many African American workers of racist targeting of them and using her power to illegally discriminate and remove them from their jobs. She has also used the same racist and discriminatory tactics in her own department as was reflected in this hearing. Workplace bullying and terror tactics against workers who want to do their jobs is endemic.
