This course has been mandated by Regional Committee for all stewards. Sectarianism, racism, homo/transphobia occur in our workplaces. Generally it is very obvious when it results in a grievance or disciplinary but sometimes our own biases mean that we don’t always recognise it at institutional level or within the wider culture. This is a new course which will enable workplace reps to explore bias, develop strategies to promote workplace inclusion and tackle sectarianism in particular.

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
