    Violence and Harassment against Women and Men in the World of Work-Trade Union Perspective and Action

    08 March 2017

    Violence against women and men in the world of work is an abuse of power that affects the most marginalised workers. Women are disproportionately affected where unequal power relations, low pay, non-standard working conditions and other workplace abuses expose them to violence in the world of work. This report draws on the work of Global Union Federations and 35 national case studies from different sectors and countries across the world to show that through collective agreements, workplace policies and negotiations, campaigns and awareness raising, trade unions have taken constructive steps to tackle violence in the world of work. A key objective of the report is to promote a systematic approach to prevention and elimination of violence and harassment at work and to inform trade unions in building a strong position for the development of a standard-setting item at the International Labour Conference in 2018.
