Investigating and Resolving Workplace Harassment - Pocket Guide

Every worker deserves fairness, respect and dignity on the job. And every worker deserves a union that will see to it that these rights are upheld. Our message is strong and clear: harassment will not be tolerated.

Role of the human rights department

Human Rights’ struggles have historically been part of the union since the early days of organizing. We are leaders in breaking new grounds and stimulating changes and in achieving equality and eliminating discriminatory attitudes and practices. Unifor is committed to working towards the creation of a society in which all persons are treated with dignity and respect.

This proud group of Unifor members will now be known as “United Workers of Diversity”.
