Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week
Oct. 14th - 20th, 2012

Recapping Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week, Part 1: From the National Press Club

by David Yamada

Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week 2012 (October 14-20) got a huge boost from a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., organized by the Workplace Bullying Institute and featuring prominent labor union leaders, civil rights activists, and anti-bullying advocates.

In addition to host Dr. Gary Namie, the roster of speakers supporting WBI and the Healthy Workplace Bill included NAGE President David C. Holway and NAGE Vice-President Greg Sorozan, SEIU International President Mary Kay Henry, NAACP Sr. Vice President and Washington Bureau Director Hilary O. Shelton, AFGE Local 32 President Charletta McNeill, NAGE Local 200 President & executive board member Jane Bethel, advocates Lana Cooke, Ernie Cooke, and Neal Dias, and personal coach Susan Rae Baker.

The event demonstrated the growing support for the workplace anti-bullying movement and for the Healthy Workplace Bill, especially among America's labor and civil rights organizations. Put simply, the presence of national officers from leading labor unions and the NAACP lent tremendous credibility to the news conference, showing that workplace bullying has emerged from the shadows to become a mainstream topic in employee relations.
