Office Dispute

In our company organigram i am a Head of Dept. I have had a on going problem with a juior staff member since Jan. It came to a head on Monday and i had tried to speak to her HOD to discuss this quietly. Her HOD would not meet with me. When this came to a head on monday both her HOD and another HOD sat in on this meeting. I was told right off that they had chatted to other staff and everyone agreed i was causing the division. I was told that even though i was HOD on the Organigram that i was no higher than this juior person. I tried to keep it work related and pulled rank as she refused to acknowledge me but bark orders at me. I wanted to pull rank and hit her with insubordination. The meeting was clearly on her side. I pulled a policy off our system and spoke to the other HOD and said i want a new chair and i feel that they had given her all the power. She walked out the meeting saying she won. Still refuses to acknowledge me. what can i do all i wanted was to end a dispute and put an end to it all but the HOD' s gave her the power to carry on as before
