Introduction to the concept of mobbing

Introduction to the concept of mobbing

"Through their national work environmental acts Sweden, Finland and Norway support the rights of workers to remain both physically and mentally healthy at work. Yet, in recent years, a workplace-related psychosocial problem has been discovered, the existence and extent of which was not known earlier.

This phenomenon has been referred to as "mobbing", "ganging up on someone", "bullying" or "psychological terror". In this type of conflict, the victim is subjected to a systematic, stigmatizing process and encroachment of his or her civil rights. If it lasts a number of years, it may ultimately lead to ejection from the labor market when the individual in question is unable to find employment due to mental injury sustained at the former work place.

I introduced this phenomenon in 1984. It certainly is a very old one, well known in every culture from the very beginning of these cultures. Nevertheless, it has not been systematically described until the research started in 1982 which led to a small scientific report written in the fall of 1983 and published in early 1984 at The National Board of Occupational Safety and Health in Stockholm, Sweden

O alívio da fome

Quando alguém nos rouba o nosso trabalho sentimo-nos injustiçados. Especialmente se esse trabalho foi conquistado por nós a pulso, com o nosso empenho, esforço, dedicação, investimento, energia, força de vontade, garra. Sem "cunhas" nem favorecimentos. Depois olhamos em volta e não vemos nada. Só desespero. Não sabemos para que lado nos havemos de virar para encontrar a dignidade profissional e pessoal roubada nesse acto hediondo. Sentimo-nos famintos e por mais que tentemos substituir essa perda, o "alívio da fome" jamais chega até nós. Sabem porquê? Porque enquanto a justiça não for feita jamais se conseguirá seguir com a nossa vida para a frente. E é por isso que jamais devemos desistir de repor a verdade. VIVA A JUSTIÇA, VIVA A VERDADE! VENHA ELA.
