Starting this month, members of the CUPE Ontario Health and Safety Committee, along with local leadership, will hold media conferences and workshops in cities across the province on the issue of workplace violence.
The CUPE Ontario anti-violence campaign is calling on the Ontario government to introduce a Violence Regulation as part of the province’s Health & Safety Act.
Statistics Canada reports that one in five violent acts occur at work. Increasingly, those who work with the public are at greater risk.
Check out the campaign dates for your community or contact the committee to book a workshop for your area by calling Don at 613-391-7345 or Stephanie at 416-299-9739 x302.
