Violence against women at work is a core trade union issue affecting workers’ rights, safety, health and dignity. Gender-based violence is also one of the main obstacles to equality between men and women.
IndustriALL recently endorsed a new campaign: Not in my union, not in my workplace, encouraging all IndustriALL affiliated trade unions to take the pledge and commit to taking action to stop violence against women.
Violence against women remains one of the most tolerated violations of human rights and trade unions have a responsibility to defend and promote women’s rights.
IndustriALL’s assistant general secretary, Jenny Holdcroft, said:
“IndustriALL is committed to eradicating violence against women, with support from IndustriALL trade unions around the world. We urge all our trade unions to take the pledge and call for an end to violence in unions and at work.”
