Victims of CSIRO launches online petition
The Victims of CSIRO advocacy group have launched an online petition through Change.org to draw attention to the flaws in the proposed ‘independent’ investigation into workplace bullying announced by the CSIRO Executive.
A completely transparent and truly independent investigation would be welcomed by those who have suffered as a result of the poor workplace culture within the CSIRO but it needs to be free from interference by the CSIRO.
The CSIRO are proposing to examine and hand on submissions to the independent investigator which they deem “suitable”. As pointed out in the media last week, this is a massive conflict of interest as the investigation could potentially receive submissions relating to the very individuals who are to examine them.
Do you trust someone in this position to appropriately handle a document containing allegations about them personally?
The question everyone should be asking in relation to CSIRO’s overt interference in this investigative process is: “What are they trying to hide?”
If you feel strongly about a just and credible investigation into workplace bullying please sign the petition in the link below. Please also forward the link to anyone who you think may feel strongly about this.
