While trade unionists have never been in any doubt about the scale of the problem - dealing with cases of sexual harassment in the workplace is the bread and butter work of many union reps – evidence can be hard to come by. This TUC report, based on polling and the experiences of trade union members, gives us both the numbers and the voices to tell the real story.
By commissioning polling and also gathering testimonies from union members via an online survey about their experiences of sexual harassment, this report explores both the nature and the scope of the problem and shines a light on an issue which is too often overlooked and underestimated.
The final section of this report sets out clear recommendations to government, employers and unions.
