Leeds Metropolitan University - Acas to handle bullying claims

January 31, 2008

The mediation service Acas has been brought in at Leeds Metropolitan University in an attempt to resolve a long-standing dispute over allegations of bullying. Relations between management and the campus unions reached a low last year after a local television station ran a series of interviews with university staff who claimed to have been bullied at work. In a joint statement, the parties said: "The university, the University and College Union and Unison have agreed to work with the assistance of Acas to examine staff relations across the university and to develop an improved mutual understanding of management and union aims and concerns and make proposals to secure lasting improvements."
