More and more cases of bullying are cropping up all over the world. One reported case came from Scotland, wherein crew members of a hit drama show, River City, said they were bullied and treated unfairly.
Bosses from BBC Scotland have launched an investigation on the reported workplace bullying, after one crew member was fired due to false accusations of swearing. There were also reports of the new management deciding to remove traditional morning and afternoon tea breaks, and demanded additional filming to be done during the previous break times. The BECTU union representing more than half of the River City crew are furious over the incidents and have even threatened to launch a strike action against the network’s unfair dismissal of the crew member and other unfair treatment claims.
The union even described the managing style of the new River City management as extremely aggressive.
