I am being bullied at work but no one is taking it seriously

DEAR DEIDRE: MY supervisor is bullying me at work. But when I told the managing director about it, he effectively called me a liar.

I am a guy of 27 and work on a food production line. I told my fiancée what is going on.

We have two young children and she says we need my wage coming in, so I will just have to put up with it.

The situation is getting me down and I find myself going to the toilet at work to avoid crying in front of everyone.

We don’t have a union representative I can turn to. The company sacks anyone who tries to join a trade union.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is illegal for a company to prohibit trade union membership among its employees.

You should start by discussing your case with Acas, which provides advice on issues in the workplace (acas.org.uk, 0300 123 1100).

In the meantime, my e-leaflet Are You Being Bullied? explains on-the-spot self-help tactics.
