Unifor is pleased to support the work of the Canadian Creative Industries Code of Conduct to Prevent and Respond to Harassment, Discrimination, Bullying and Violence. We applaud the collaboration and leadership shown by ACTRA and others including our local Nabet 700M to create this new Code.
Unifor supports all efforts to create safe and respectful workplaces free of harassment including sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence.
We agree that it is time to make sure unwanted sexual attention, inappropriate comments, and other unwelcome behavior is not tolerated on film sets, casting auditions or production studios.
We agree as signatories to this Code to abide by the provisions and will do our part to create safe workplaces in all areas of the media sector. As Canada’s largest media union representing 12 thousand media workers, we all have a shared responsibility to do this important work.
