This week is Anti-bullying week. The silence from the unions is deafening. There is already a great thread on here discussing the role of unions in challenging workplace bullying, so I don't propose to go over old ground. I am interested, however, in what might be done to persuade unions en masse to effectively challenge workplace abuse where it exists. As a starting point, a fellow poster here has recently u.covered that no teaching union has EVER taken a bullying claim to court for a member. Not one. Ever.
