Bullying of working people is
escalating. California Healthy Workplace Advocates are part of a National Campaign to pass legislation against workplace
bullying and the serious health and safety concerns that accompany it. This workshop will draw the links between the epidemic
of workplace bullying and the police terror evident in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, and North Charleston, San Francisco
and many other cities in our country. Bullying on the job and police harassment of minority people have the
same basic foundation of abuse. Bullying is also associated with the growing militarization of the police with billions being
spent on armored vehicles and machine guns while, at the same time, social services are cut; public education is
being privatized and destroyed for the general public and will have the strongest impact on the poor and oppressed. We'll
talk about what we can all do to affect positive changes around us.
Speakers include: Greg Sorosan, SEIU NAGE 282 President; Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 San Francisco General Hospital
Chapter President; Dr. Derek Kerr, former doctor and whistleblower at Laguna Honda Hospital; Carrie
Clark, Co-founder of California Healthy Workplace Advocates and former teacher/whistleblower; Jamie Tillotson, former San
Francisco Public Defender who was arrested for defending African American client's rights at the Hall of Justice; and Derrick
Boutte, SEIU 1021 Chair.

We are here because Bullying Breaks Hearts...
Occupational stress severely increases the risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, and
post traumatic stress disorder. These are just a few of the many possible physical consequences of workplace bullying.
Workers injured by work abuse often suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
as a result of long-term psychological violence committed against them.
Presently, to our national shame, the United States and the State of California have no laws prohibiting status-blind
harassment in the workforce. It is perfectly legal to harass an employee or co-worker until the job becomes unbearable
and the workers are disabled.
