AWU condemns workplace bullying: it’s unacceptable

February 7, 2020

The Australian Workers’ Union (AWU) has again condemned workplace bullying, saying too many workers continue to face bullying and harassment every time they go to work for simply trying to do their jobs. 

AWU Queensland Branch Secretary Steve Baker said bullying is not just unacceptable, it’s unlawful.

“Disappointingly, like at many other workplaces, workers at TraceJV are experiencing bullying at work,” Steve said.

“It is our long-held view that this is not acceptable. Workers deserve the right to know they can go to work and come home safely at the end of their working day.

“Every day, the AWU is actively supporting members who are experiencing bullying and harassment.

“We encourage any member who faces these issues in their workplace to contact their AWU officials for support and assistance. Our message to members is, ‘We’ve got your back.’ ”

Steve Baker said all employers need to work harder to ensure their workplace is safe for their employees.

“It’s not good enough to ignore these behaviours – it’s a serious safety issue in the workplace when bullying is left unaddressed,” Steve added.

“We call on all employers to lift their game when it comes to stamping out bullying in their workplace.”
