Abstract This booklet makes the case that bullying at work is also the result of organizational failures, and that a trade union involvement is consequently appropriate. It presents facts, arguments, proposals for intervention and a synthesis of Belgian and European legislation. It also describes the typical profiles of the persecutor and the victim, and addresses comprehensively the roles of employers, safety committees and OSH specialists.
