Violence and Harassment Survey

cupe1975Questions of the Day

Violence and Harassment Survey

To CUPE 1975 members,

We are excited to announce a new national survey on workplace violence and harassment.

Take the survey now.

It is the first ever survey on violence and sexual harassment in the workplace with a national reach in Canada, and will help unions, employers and policy makers create safer workplaces for everyone.

The survey is being conducted by the Canadian Labour Congress in partnership with research experts at Western University.

We need all workers to fill it out—workers of every gender, whether or not you have experienced or witnessed workplace violence or harassment. This is how we will get a clearer picture of workers’ experiences in workplaces across the country.

The survey is open to all workers 18 years of age or older. It takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete, and your response will be anonymous.

The survey is online here. Your participation makes a difference.

Thanks for your help in making work safer for everyone.

In solidarity,

CUPE 1975
