Local Unifor leaders face many challenges. In addition to supporting the goals of the union, you are called on to inspire membership solidarity and deal with many workplace concerns. This pocket guide outlines general guidelines for investigating cases of harassment and seeking fair and meaningful resolutions. It was written in response to the many requests we’ve had for clear and concise guidelines for handling workplace harassment. In your hands it can become a useful tool for restoring fairness, respect, and dignity on the job and in our union.
Harassment investigator training is available from Unifor and is recommended for all leadership. Check our website for details on Unifor education programs.
Workplace harassment isn’t simply a personal problem. It’s a health and safety issue, a political issue, a human rights issue, and a trade union issue. As leadership, we need to deal with workplace harassment with the same kind of energy and commitment we put into issues like pay and benefits.
