CPSU, MEAA and the non-union bargaining reps all withdrew from the discussions at the EA meeting today, following VACT management’s failure to respond in detail, or at all to the staff EBA claims tabled at last week’s meeting, where management inflamed representatives with the delivery of an updated offer which was worse than their original position.
Issues of Bullying in the workplace are not new but their incidence is increasing because of the cut-backs on staff and resourcing, heavy workloads and impossible deadlines. Currently within the Victorian Public Sector one in three people have experienced or witnessed workplace bullying. A workplace culture of bullying, poor people-management practices and skills and the impact of organisational change are other factors that can contribute to the incidence of workplace bullying.
