Hi All I am new here so hello to all. I know there are a lot of other very important issues going on at the moment surrounding education, but i just thought i would see if anyone could offer some advice. I feel as though i am being bullied by some members of my team at work. I know it sounds trivial but they are really making my life at work hell, so much so that i desparately want to leave. The only reason i am still here is the finacial benefits (i have a mortage) and i love the students and my job. Last term, my collegues got so bad that i was forced to move out if my staffroom/department into another, 2 floors up. They never tell me what is going on and when i ask i never get an answer, even on email. Then if i dont know what they are doing, they blame me. They are continuously putting me down (telling me my work is not good) or having a go at me in front of students. When i pull them aside to ask them not to do that, they deny it and storm off. Yet as soon as they need a favour or help with something, they come straight to me. I have spoken to the union and to my manager and have been told that there is nothing that can be done. I am also having to defend them and their actions to the students who are coming to me to complain about them and their treatment of students, eg. throwing someone out and 'expelling' them for the rest of the session because the complained of feeling ill. I know it sounds really childish and like i am still at school, but i am in tears every morning cos i dont want to come in to work with these people.
