Calling out the boss with ‘sign’ language

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.”
Gregg McWilliams

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!

    I fully support Tony, I have a friend who had to retire because her boss is a bully and no one in our county would do anything about it. It’s sad because the people who loose out the most are the public that are served as well as the individual worker. Abuse of a position is common throughout county supervisor position. I think supervisors should be subject to annual reviews by their staff in order to hold the supervisor accountable for good management skills.

    Great headline and creative pr while exposing the boss. Is there anything SEIU can do for Santa Cruz county, or are the workers too intimidated? Good Luck Tony in Monterey county!

    The voters should unite in Zeebs re-election to remove her permanently. The county needs someone who is not racist, descrimates and bullies or shows preference to workers “friends”, thanks to some of the workers in her own dept she is the Treasurer Tax Collector-without them she would be unemployed and another statistic. I support Tony and any other coworker that is in the same situation as he. Rehire Tony
