What is Harassment & Bullying?
This was one of the first questions posed by the course tutor when eight members of your Branch Committee attended a two day “Understanding Harassment & Bullying” course at the beginning of August. At the end of two intensive days, I think we all knew the answer.
Have you ever said “I’m being bullied” or “I’m being victimised”? Maybe yes, maybe no. maybe you have heard colleagues saying similar phrases? We can all say things when we are cross, tired, fed up, late off etc., but if any member believes they are facing, discrimination, bullying, harassment or victimisation they should contact their Steward or any Branch Officer for advice and support.
As a Branch we cannot change what has happened in the past, but we can change what happens from this point forward, both by supporting our members and robustly challenging the Trust at every level.
