at a schedule Delegate Body meeting, District Council employees, EST Mike Bilello and President Bill Lebo, conducted themselves in a disgraceful way that was unwelcome, within a few minutes, publicly, lies were spread against me,“vexatious, personal and indecorous” comments were made, members of the Delegate Body were incited, and I was intimidated, harassed, humiliated, threatened and had charges filed against me.
The conduct of both Bilello and Lebo, not only violates the Stipulation and Order, the Laws of the UBC, but also violates the “Anti-Harassment Policy” incorporated into the Councils “Personnel Policy Manual” for employees.
A harassment complaint has been filed with the Human Resources Director, of the New York City District Council of Carpenters requesting an investigation be conducted pursuit to the “Anti-Harassment Policy” and have the appropriate disciplinary action taken.
Immediate relief is necessary so that fellow union members may exercise their free speech rights without fear of harassment and retaliation.
