It has come to our attention that there are a number of concerns within the workplace in relation to bullying, negative culture and a lack of trust within the City of Greater Geelong.


We are writing to all ASU members, and potential members, across the City of Greater Geelong in search of employees willing to come forward and speak to the ASU about recent bullying, culture issues or examples where no support or response was provided in relation to a grievance raised with COGG management. Employees will have the right to remain anonymous if they wish to do so, but without employees coming forward the culture won’t change and bullies will remain in the workplace.


The ASU takes bullying as a very serious matter, and as such is treating this health and safety matter as a priority, which is why we are approaching both members and non-members about the alleged behaviours.


It is unfortunate that we have to send out such a notice; however we hope approaching the matter collectively will encourage those to come forward who have struggled to do so in the past.


If you could please email your issue to or feel free to book in a time to visit Brendan at the Geelong Trades Hall office, Brendan can be contacted via the details below.
