GMB to conduct survey at East of England Ambulance service over bullying at the trust after members report widespread problems.
GMB very much hope that the new interim Chief Executive at East of England Ambulance Service will put the emphasis on the ‘Service’ part of the title of the Trust.
GMB, the union for ambulance staff, is surveying members employed in the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAS) over bullying at the Trust. This is in response to an increase in the number of reports of bullying by managers of GMB members. GMB is hoping the survey will ascertain the exact cause of the increase and pinpoint how the incidences of bullying can be stopped.
Tony Hughes, GMB Organiser said, “On the day Andrew Morgan joins the EEAS as the interim Chief Executive, GMB sent an anti-bullying questionnaire to all its members who work for the EEAS. GMB members have recently reported an increase of bullying by managers at the Trust.
With this survey GMB hopes to discover the scope of any problems and will then share the results with Andrew Morgan CEO in the hope that he will engage with GMB to deal with any adverse finding.
GMB very much hope that the new Chief Executive at East of England Ambulance Service will put the emphasis on the ‘Service’ part of the title of the Trust.
GMB members who work for the Trust are looking forward to their initial meeting with their new interim boss and hope that together service can be built into the best ambulance service in the UK.”
