Busting Bullies in the Workplace

Come join the Guild for a FREE informational seminar by Cornell University experts on harassment prevention in the workplace.

Members and their spouses are free to attend. So we can provide lunch for all those attending, please sign up privately online at

Saturday, February 1, from 10 am–2pm at the Desmond. Lunch provided!

Most managers at the Times Union are good people who treat their employees well, but we’ve had a few incidents that prompted people to ask how to handle the exceptions. This forum for our members should help provide some answers on how to deal with inappropriate behavior in the workplace, whether it’s a manager making inappropriate sexual comments, a boss using threats and intimidation, or any other type of bullying.

Experts from Cornell University will lay out the legal standards, discuss what constitutes harassment and bullying, and then give members a chance to discuss behavior that concerns them and brainstorm what they can do about it.

The seminar is being sponsored by The Newspaper Guild’s International.
