Unite, the UK’s leading union, which represents hundreds of workers at Sellafield, is committed to ensuring that a ‘toxic and bullying culture’ at the re-processing plant is eradicated.

Unite made the commitment after a number of whistleblowers highlighted concerns about how some workers have been treated at Sellafield.

Unite regional officer Malcolm Carruthers said: “The concerns raised about the toxic bullying culture at Sellafield are deeply disturbing and must be fully addressed.

 “Unite has a clear policy of zero tolerance to bullying in the workplace. The union is already working with the new management at Sellafield to address existing concerns.

 “If any Unite members at Sellafield believes that they are being bullied or mistreated in anyway, then they should contact the union immediately,  where they will receive our full support to ensure the problem is fully resolved.”
