The ASU receives many calls from members who are on the receiving end of bullying at work. And unfortunately, the number of cases of bullying only seems to be increasing.
Bullying is repeated unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or a group of workers and can be direct or indirect. It can be a dangerous threat to physical wellbeing or psychologically damaging and can result in actual physical injury or health problems due to stress. This makes it a work health and safety issue and a reportable incident. Bullying is a serious issue!
Your employer has a duty of care and must make sure all employees are safe at work and free from risks to their health and safety.
The ASU responds to all reports of bullying seriously.
If you are being bullied at work, immediately contact your local ASU Organiser or the ASU Member Contact Centre on 1300 855 570.
