Stop harassment: A guide for CUPE locals is a 14-page kit for local union stewards, officers and other activists. It covers:

  • The definition of harassment.
  • The effects of harassment.
  • An overview of workers’ rights and employers’ responsibilities.
  • How the union can challenge harassment and support members.
  • A checklist for anti-harassment policies and collective agreement language.

The pamphlet Speak out! Stop harassment is for members who have experienced or witnessed harassment, or who want to organize on the issue.

A new research paper, Workplace Harassment and Mental Injuries: Examining Root Causes, shows that harassment is a leading cause of stress and mental injury.

Poor working conditions contri­bute to harassment, and marginalized workers are most affected.
