Canada’s unions have launched a new national survey on workplace violence and harassment, and UFCW Canada is encouraging members, activists, and allies to participate in the survey by sharing your thoughts on these issues.
The survey, which is being conducted by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) in collaboration with researchers at Western University and the University of Toronto, is the first-ever survey on violence and sexual harassment in the workplace with a national reach in Canada. It can be accessed by clicking here.
All workers of every gender, whether or not you have experienced or witnessed workplace violence or harassment, are encouraged to participate in the survey in order to provide Canada’s labour movement with a clearer picture of workers’ perceptions of and experiences with violence and harassment in workplaces across the country.
The results of the survey research will also inform policy and education initiatives on workplace violence and sexual harassment for the CLC and its affiliates.
The National Survey on Harassment and Violence at Work in Canada is open to all workers 18 years of age or older and takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete. All respondents will remain anonymous, and you are welcome to share the survey with your friends, family, colleagues, and social networks.
