The focus for heartunions week

This year, the campaign focus for heartunions week is tackling sexual harassment at work. We're demanding employers to take reasonable steps to protect workers from sexual harassment and victimisation. Most employers rely on individuals reporting cases, but this is not enough. 4 out of 5 people don’t feel able to report sexual harassment to their employer . We’ve got a plan to radically change this - but we need you with us.

Here's how you can take part

  • Kick off #heartunions week by joining our urgent call on Monday 10 February at 7pm with Frances O’Grady and others to discuss the plan on how we can take action together to prevent sexual harassment.
  • Get a refresher on how to have a good organising conversation by joining our webinar on Tuesday 4 February . We’ll hear top tips from two exciting young organisers in the movement.
  • Run a workplace event, rally, or a street stall , highlighting the good work unions do? You could get signatures for our petition calling for a change in the law on sexual harassment or find a local issue that your union can make a difference on.
