NS SPCA takes care of animals but not their employees!

I'm sure you've heard lots of great things about the important work that the NS SPCA provides for animals in need. It's true! There are many very dedicated & compassionate people who work & volunteer with the society. 

However, I'm here to shed light on an unseen & troubling aspect within the SPCA; it's employee bullying and harassment! How can employees do their job effectively when immediate supervisors and management are causing plus knowingly ignoring harassment? 

NS SPCA CEO, Elizabeth Murphy, knows all about the specific & awful details regarding several bullying incidents, however, chooses to 'brush them off'!  My immediate supervisor was responsible for ALL of this bullying/harassment! She should be fired!

During my 3 dedicated, loyal & hardworking years volunteering & then working, with the SPCA Kings branch, I've suffered from & witnessed bullying/harassment.  I was laid off from my part time position at the Kings shelter in October 2018 (from apparent 'lack of work') & have since been fighting for my job, as well as basic human rights. I was denied a hearing to fight for my job, by CEO Elizabeth Murphy. AND 1 day prior to my lay off, a job opening was posted/advertised for the exact position I was originally hired for!!! Wrongful dismissal!!!

For the privacy of my remaining co-workers/friends I don't want to elaborate too much on specific bullying incidents. 

I have reached out to the Labour Board, who tell me there are no laws to address my situation & I've reached out to the Human Rights Commission for their assistance. I also recently participated in a CBC radio Maritime Noon discussion on workplace bullying, which aired Jan. 9/19. 

My sincere plea is for you to join me in standing up against CEO Elizabeth Murphy!

We can NOT allow bullying/harassment & wrongful dismissal (my lay off) to continue within this workplace! Employees MUST be looked after in order for them to look after the animals who are in need!

We have a right to work in a safe environment free from harassment, intimidation, coersion and bullying! 

***I encourage anyone who has gone through anything remotely similar within the NSSPCA to reach out & speak up!! I've personally already heard from several people who have voluntarily shared troubling stories & are willing and eager to put an end to this harassment!***

Please share this with your family, coworkers & friends!

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT & HELP END WORKPLACE HARASSMENT!

Thank you in advance very much. #saynotobullyingNSSPCA
