Councillors will meet next week to consider calls for an independent investigation into bullying at Coventry City Council. It follows the release of a survey by a trades union which found that 85% of respondents felt they had been bullied at some point.
The calls for an investigation come from Conservative councillors who say this is just the latest development in a long line of incidents. They point to data obtained through Freedom of Information laws which revealed a sudden rise in complaints of bullying from zero in 2016 to twelve in 2018.
