Union launches anti-bullying at work drive
A “very well-received” anti-bullying drive for the island's workplaces has been launched by the Bermuda Public Services Union.
Jason Hayward, the BPSU president, said that a special-edition resource magazine printed for the campaign had been in high enough demand to need an extra printing.
“What we would ultimately like to see in the workplace is a change in behaviour from those who bully and harass others,” he said. “Hopefully, when they see the poster or read the magazine, they think twice.”
Every worker has a right to fair treatment in a workplace free of bullying and harassment, but the union continues to field complaints and concerns from its members over the “unacceptable” issue.
Accordingly, two union representatives were sent for training in British Columbia to develop the campaign and its strategies.
It marks the first large campaign since the BPSU joined the Quality Public Services global drive in 2011.
