Arts workers have complained of being misused in such a way – being publicly castigated if complaints are made and having their commitment to the arts and to their organization openly doubted and ridiculed. Archer (1999) noted that in organizations with a military structure, the behaviour of the tyrannical manager could be overtly encouraged and even imitated by others, particularly if the behaviour is perceived as that of strong management, which gets things done. In the arts case studies there are examples of individuals adopting bullying behaviour on the basis either that it is necessary to ensure that people deliver, or simply that it works – having observed that bullies receive plaudits for results, sometimes including promotion.

Whilst the collection of quantitative data has its place, those social scientists concerned with antipositivism or phenomenology seek to create and to use scientific methods to study human behaviour and society, and those are methods used in the field of the natural and the formal sciences. Phenomenology is a philosophical stance, rather than a research method, but of course it may well influence the research methods chosen. Although quantitative methods can be used to assess the impact of bullying behaviour by analysing language, for example, qualitative researchers, and especially phenomenologists, argue that these measurements lack depth and therefore do not really get to the essence of the bullying experience.

Complaints of bullying behaviour have been settled satisfactorily by management and to the satisfaction of the complainant, ‘sometimes’, but this varies. Her organization has written policies covering: direct insults in front of colleagues; arbitrary withholding of information, cooperation or arrangements; and physical assault, for example, throwing objects. Her organization does not condone bullying, but has not given any consideration to having a bullying policy. She does not think there is a role for BECTU in helping to stamp out bullying behaviour in the workplace and states instead that ‘BECTU must be dissolved’.
