UK: Northern Ireland universities' bullying shame

Northern Ireland's two universities have been listed among the worst in a survey on bullying of university staff across the UK, reports the Belfast Telegraph. The University of Ulster and Queen's University feature in the 'worst' category for staff being 'always' or 'often' bullied.

Ulster was 7th on the national list compiled by the University and College Union (UCU). The union has named and shamed the universities with the worst reported levels of bullying ahead of last Friday's national Ban Bullying at Work Day. Queen's was 19th.

The University of East London had the worst ranking with almost 17% of the staff surveyed saying they were always or often bullied. In 19 institutions at least one-in-10 respondents to the UCU survey reported being 'always' or 'often' bullied.
