Thank you to so many of you who took the time to complete our survey. We think the results are really stark and we have written to Leisure and Culture to request a meeting to discuss the level of bullying you have reported and how they improve this.
Please speak to someone if you have experienced workplace bullying and GMB Scotland will support you if you wish to complain. You should have confidence that you can raise your concerns safely without fear of any repercussions and we will be seeking these assurances from LACD.
