Survey respondents predict more bullying with lost bargaining rights


In a WBI 2011 instant poll just completed, site visitors were asked if rights for public sector unions were lost, would there be more or less workplace bullying in the future. More bullying was overwhemingly predicted.

The question: If public-sector unions lose the right to bargain for working conditions, do you expect to see more bullying and abuse in your workplace in the future?

The responses:

45.8% — I have no union — YES, I predict more bullying

6.9% — I have no union — NO, I do not predict more bullying

35.1% — I am a public-sector union member — YES,  I predict more bullying

1% — I am a public-sector union member — NO,  I do not predict more bullying

9.7% — I am a private-sector union member — YES,  I predict more bullying

1.4% — I am a private-sector union member — NO,  I predict more bullying

Here are the various ways that people predicted that YES there would be more bullying:

Overall:  YES — 90.7% ;   NO — 9.3%

Union members:  YES — 95% ; NO — 5%

Non-union individuals: YES — 86.8%;  NO — 13.2%
