If you work for the State of Maryland, State Sen. Muse plans to convene a Task Force to study the extent and impact of workplace bullying and make recommendations. This is SB 689. It’s not a prohibitive law, but he clearly does care about bullying of State workers. In the past, he has been very sympathetic to bullied workers.
On Tuesday March 15 at 1 pm at the Capitol, the Senate Finance Committee will hear testimony on the bill.
State workers, take time off work to go testify. On the Maryland State Page, you can find the link to instructions to give testimony. The committee wants written statements prior to the scheduled hearing. Please read and follow the instructions.
Good luck on March 15!
On March 1, HB 1104, the same Task Force bill, was heard in the House Appropriations Committee. Union supporters included AFT, AFSCME and MPAC and one bullied MDOT former employee. You can view the video here on the State website. Testimony begins at time mark 4:09:40 and ends at 4:26:00.
