Third sector 'has bullying problem'

Trade union Unite is targeting charities as part of a drive to tackle workplace bullying in third sector organisations.

Unite is launching a fresh crusade against bullying and harassment in charities as part of its Dignity at Work campaign, which it runs in association with the new Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.

"We are really going to push Dignity at Work in the not-for-profit sector," a Unite spokeswoman said. "We believe bullying is a serious issue in the sector, and we want something to be done about it."

Last week, the Children's Society became only the second charity, after fellow children's charity NCH, to join the campaign, which was launched in 2004 (Third Sector Online, 26 June).
