From The Socialist newspaper, 9 December 2009

Management bullying? Surely not...

A dispute over workplace bullying between Glyndwr University (Wrexham) administration and University and College Union (UCU) members escalated on Monday 7 December, when management attempted to get security and police to evict Glyndwr UCU organiser Hamish Murphy from his office.

Edmund Schluessel

Police officers refused to intervene, calling the dispute a civil matter, but university security blocked UCU members from speaking with Hamish.

Bosses dismissed Murphy in October after he spoke out against administrative bullying of university staff. A decision on his appeal against dismissal has been repeatedly put off.

Murphy told The Socialist: "By sending security and calling the police, they are trying to hinder me in pursuing these [trade union] activities.

"I was stopped from seeing UCU members for over an hour whilst a security guard kept his foot in the union office door to stop me shutting it to speak privately to union members including both the branch secretary and the health and safety representative."

Glyndwr academic staff demonstrated on 2 December in support of Hamish.

Glyndwr management deny sacking Hamish for his UCU work and state he is welcome to continue it.
