I too am a victim ..of what iz known as "office-bullying" at a NYS AGENCY.. this practice is quite commonplace in several NYS Agencies...the common denominator between my situation & Mr. Raucci's involves the CSEA's FAILURE TO PROTECT & OBSERVE MY RIGHTS UNDER THE CSEA CONTRACT....a personal meeting with Danny Donohue in 2008 pleading for his "help" went unaddressed as I was being ostrasized by my employers for reporting security breaches to the NYS Department of Civil Service Suggestion Committee in 2007...this viscious & preventable experience was ALLOWED to continue ..with MY CSEA REPS TURNING THEIR BACKS ON ME...until I was escorted out of the building AFTER finding out I had been set up....the efforts by Management & the CSEA's lack of support.. to TERMINATE me afer 28 years of stellar NYS srvice took a toll on me both physically & emotionally..the documentation that I have would show anyone that I was definitely retaliated against this time both the CSEA & my Agency have NOT been held accountable for their insidious actions in my case..there needs to be an investigation into the CSEA's false premise that they CARE ABOUT THEIR MEMBERS...I am hoping that the Raucci case and the e-mails that are exposed to both the Albany Times Union & Schenectady Gazette reporterz will include Raucci's cushy relationship with his fellow CSEA thugs....I am counting on the reporters to expose the truth for what it really iz...please don't let me down...
