A union officer was creating a harassing environment by telling members that two fellow officers were having intimate relations at the worksite. He was aggressive, derogatory in remarks about the two, especially the female, to fellow union membership in what seemed a smear campaign. He trued to have the two officers fired but was instead removed for his conduct. He then decided to sue the union and disseminated the court filing documents to open membership.
As a woman and fellow union member, I feel harassed and upset at continually hearing him sexually disparage these two fellow members, especially as I believe his claims are false (even if not, his conduct is harassing and aggressive). Today, I was texted a copy of his lawsuit which he disseminated to the membership which again names one of the persons and alludes to the other is purely assumptive claims of sexual nature. To me, this is a continued harassing environment and sexual harassment as well and I am harassed and sick and tired of having this hateful person’s harassment of my co-union members forced down my throat constantly. I am horrified at how the victims are being treated and openly disparaged.
Since the union is obviously unable to constrain person who’s suing them for self-inflicted consequences to his own abusive behavior, what can I do to let it be known that I find these many months of his conduct harassing to me, hurtful and sexually inappropriate, and that I want it to stop?
