Stop Discriminatory Treatment of Gay Employees at San Antonio Federal Credit Union

      San Antonio, TX

Currently, employees of San Antonio Federal Credit Union who are gay are not allowed to use the unisex employee restrooms at SAFCU branches; instead being told to use restrooms in the lobby. SAFCU also prohibits gay employees from mentioning their families at work, while heterosexual families are allowed to discuss their families freely at work. This is important because all employees should be entitled to equal treatment and should be treated with dignity and respect -- regardless of their sexual orientation. A whistleblower who reported these discriminatory practices to the Human Resources Department was terminated for doing so. Please sign this important petition and demand that SAFCU stop these discriminatory practices.

      Please read and share. I am also told that the Dallas Voice has written an article as well. I also just received a "Cease & Desist" order from my former employer demanding I stop the petition. Funny...when I demanded they stop treating me the way they did, they ignored me. What do you all think I should do?

      Please read and share on your FB, etc. This is the first press coverage of our petition and your continued involvement is crucial to putting an end to all of this. They can't be serious about the "Cease and Desist" letter which -- by the way -- I have not received. I don't think that's the route they wanna take. Thanks to everyone....

      I am so thankful for the outpouring of support. It makes me feel like I am not going through this alone. I've already been contacted by local reporters. This is not a fight I relish...and my health has suffered greatly...but it is the right thing to do. I know you all may get sick of hearing me talk about it, but please, please, PLEASE get your friends to sign and share. As I said before, tweet, share, like, email and talk to your friends.

      This is idiotic. Being Gay has nothing to do with job performance, bathroom habits, or family stories. If you don't want people sharing family stories then don't let ANYONE talk about their personal life at work. Surely it's not relevant to the work being done.

      I am signing because I am the mother of a gay son and I would never want him to be discriminated in this or any other way.
