Stop Bullying Now! Richmond City Workers Protest Bullying & Corruption By HR Director Leslie Knight

Dozens of Richmond California workers from SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21 attended a press conference on Tuesday March 19, 2013 outside the Richmond City Council to protest the bullying of city workers and whistleblowers. Human Resource manager Leslie Knight according to an official city report had misused city funds illegally and was ordering workers to work on her private business. Where city workers including IFPTE Local 21 member Stacie Plummer reported this she was retaliated against by Knight for whistleblowing about the violations of the law and rules in the City of Richmond. Despite these violations, Richmond city manager Bill Lindsay who is a personal friend of Knight has said that he will not remove her from the job despite flagrant violations of worker, human rights and criminal law.
Workers recounted a reign of bullying by Knight not only against Plummer but other workers.
