Monterey County Tax Collector workers took a stand against bullying in the workplace on Sept. 25.
SEIU 521 members gathered in Salinas in support of their union brother who was wrongfully terminated by Mary Zeeb, Monterey County’s Treasurer-Tax Collector.
Managers in the department have been intimidating workers for over two years. Yet Zeeb refuses to acknowledge any problem.
“We brought the issue of wrongful terminations to the boss and no actions have been taken to improve the situation. We need to hold our elected leaders accountable, stop favoritism, stop cronyism, and stop the intimidation.”
During the action members held up signs that read, “Hey Mary Zeeb,” “Rehire Tony,” and “No more cronyism.”
Workers will continue to ramp up their campaign to make sure their message is heard: “We will not tolerate bully bosses!”
What’s next: Continue to support Tony and stay tuned for the next action against intimidation and wrongful terminations!
