Regis Rose Bay- Workplace Bullying and Your Rights at Work

The Health Services Union (HSU) is aware of the increasing concerns about bullying and harassment at Regis Rose Bay.

Members at your workplace contacted the HSU and shared their experiences in which they felt ‘intimidated’, ‘humiliated’, or ‘threatened’ by other staff in a repeated manner.  

Workplace bullying is a repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or a group of workers that creates a risk to health and safety. It is a psychological hazard that has the potential to harm you. More information about the issue can be found at Dealing with Workplace Bullying – a Worker’s Guide provided by Safe Work Australia. A hard copy will be displayed on your noticeboard soon.

Every worker has the right to a fair and safe workplace. It is your employer’s responsibility to keep your workplace safe, and staff should feel safe raising their concerns both internally and with the Union.

The HSU will be organising meetings with Regis Rose Bay members very soon to discuss the issue and develop a strategy. If you have any concerns and would like to raise them, please contact your local organiser Hyojung Kim at hyojung.kim@hsu.asn.au or 0458 012 322.

If you know a workmate who is not a member, tell them to join the HSU. We will have greater power to resolve issues at your workplace if we stand together as a Union. Encourage your workmates to join online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or phone 1300 478 679.

In unity,

Gerard Hayes

Secretary, HSU NSW/ACT/QLD
