Some of my direct co workers and Leads don’t like me and are causing me harassment problems every day. Im not their family or friend or even their (race) and am not getting treated equally. I am in a seniority position that is preferable to others because of full time hours and days off. Other coworkers want my spot and harass me all the time trying to get me out of my position. I react to them after the harassment by being defensive and protective because I don’t feel they should be treating me like that. My union rep is too busy to help. 1 of the union stewards that was present for one of the meetings also feels I am being “railroaded”, her words in a voicemail to the rep. Management and HR is blaming me and gathering incriminating statements from them. It has come to the point to where I cant even talk to anyone because they lie and call it aggressive. Never take into consideration that the people are harassing me first. All of the people that don’t like me gather together and get interviewed by HR and I feel they are being coaxed and coerced into what to say to incriminate me.

I prefer type correspondences. I have a terrible memore.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Management HR is currently wanting me to apply for a different bid job (position) within the plant or move to a different shift to rid the drama from the area. This is not a fix, to me. It took me 5 YEARS to get to where I'm at and their harassment is going to harm my hard 5 years of work. Stressing me out enough to be on 2 different anxiety medications and causing serious sleep problems because of the stress. Im rambling now I think. I'll wait for next response.

I am sorry once more to read about your difficulties.

You need to file complaint against the company with Washington Human Rights Commission or U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to stop this harassment. You do not need an Attorney to file your complaint.

Best wishes,
