To close Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week, mobilize Unions
For Freedom Week 2012, we gathered at the National Press Club in Washington DC to hear two union presidents declare their opposition to Workplace Bullying. Here are those statements repeated.
Unions are the most natural advocates for anti-bullying. However, bullying befuddles many union leaders (they are tough guys and gals themselves, they aspire to management and co-opt union goals). Rank-in-file members want and deserve protection against bullying assaults, regardless of the source — management or member. Member-on-member bullying provides the union with opportunities to do better, to serve more, to support abused members, to correct abusive members, to use freedom from bullying as an organizing tool.
Help WBI help your union do more. Visit our Workplace Bullying for Unions website. Attend Workplace Bullying University® to equip the entire union with requisite skills to attack the problem. Tell defiant leadership to stand down and not become bullies themselves.
