Hayes, Va. – A group of female letter carriers says they were victimized by a postal predator.
Their supervisor subjected them to ridicule and harassment driving them to the mental brink.
Then they watched their predator get promoted.
“He was the boss from hell!”
That’s how a group of former letter carriers describe their work environment.
For years, female letter carriers in Hayes, Virginia endured a work environment that a judge agreed was hostile!
Delivering the mail was the easy part, but once back in the office, they were the target of a postal predator.
Most had to seek therapy to make themselves whole after repeated badgering.
“He would say, ‘What did you say Gail? Your son is gay,’ when he knew that wasn’t the case,” says Gail Brunjes, a former postal worker.
“At the time, I had a 12-year-old daughter, came in in a pair of shorts and he made a comment about her. ‘Whose daughter is that? If I wouldn’t like her legs to be wrapped around me,’” recalls Candy Robbins.
The postal service replied with a one sentence response , saying “We are disappointed with the decision, but respect the process and will adhere to the decision.”
The women have received their financial award for damages, but the postal service was also ordered to provide a compliance report to show how they have fixed the behavior that got them into trouble in the first place.
So far no response to their lawyers’ office, and until that happens, the women feel no one is being held accountable for what happened to them.
