An Oracle manager quit after CEO Safra Catz joined Donald Trump's transition team, listing complaints pertaining to the president-elect in an open letter posted on LinkedIn.

George A. Polisner, an Oracle director, posted the open letter to tell Oracle’s co-CEO that he was resigning due to her decision to work on Trump’s transition team, Fortune noted.

Catz was one of several tech leaders who were invited to Trump Towers last week, according to the Silicon Angle.

Catz, who is said to have been the highest-paid female executive in the U.S. in 2015, wasn’t very vocal about Trump or the election during this year’s presidential campaign.

Despite that though, Catz was the first of the tech attendees to join the transition team.

“I plan to tell the president-elect that we are with him and will help in any way we can,” Catz said prior to the meeting. “If he can reform the tax code, reduce regulation and negotiate better trade deals, the U.S. technology industry will be stronger and more competitive than ever.”

Polisner’s resignation comes after working for Oracle for more than two decades, according to IT Pro.

“I began with Oracle in 1993 and was proud to work among some of the best software development and operations engineers in the world,” Polisner wrote in his open letter. “I’ve made significant contributions to Oracle along the way in my various roles ranging from consulting, product development, customer advocacy, program management and now in Cloud.”

“I am not with President-elect Trump and I am not here to help him in any way,” he added. “In fact – when his policies border on the unconstitutional, the criminal and the morally unjust – I am here to oppose him in every possible and legal way. Therefore I must resign from this once great company.”

Polisner also started an online petition for other Oracle employees to voice their disagreement with Trump.

At the time of Polisner’s letter, the petition had received 100 signatures.
