Subtracting two files by string

I have file with a list of names like this:

I have another file with three columns like this (tab delimited):
wwrwe	rgdfg	sgfd
dgfd	sdgdg	dfg
fsss	dfgdf	sdgfd

Now I want the lines whose 2nd column is not similar to any of the strings in the first file. Basically, I'd like to subtract the first file from the second file. I'd appreciate if someone could help.
