We’re the TUC. We were founded in 1868, and we bring together more than 5.6 million working people who make up our 48 member unions.
Working people joining together can change things. For more than 150 years, unions have fought for safer workplaces and wages you can build a life on. And today we’re needed more than ever to make sure every job is a decent job and everyone at work is treated with respect.
Just as working people are stronger when they act together, so unions are stronger when they join together in the TUC.
End sexual harassment at workSexual harassment has no place in the workplace. But every day, people across the UK are sexually harassed at work. 1 in 2 women have been sexually harassed at work. 2 in 3 LGBT workers have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace - that's 68%. Currently, there is no legal duty on employers to take proactive action to prevent this from happening. We're demanding a new, easily enforceable legal duty requiring employers to take all reasonable steps to protect workers from sexual harassment and victimisation. Our laws rely on individuals reporting but #ThisIsNotWorking. The onus is on the victim to report - which can be isolating, confusing and potentially traumatic. Four out of five don’t feel able to report sexual harassment to their employer. It should not be down to the individual to prevent and manage their harassment alone. Tell the government to act now and change the law. https://gallery.mailchimp.com/8afd273cb98bce4cdfe3e8bd2/images/8910e134-a84b-4dfb-9e5d-e19c912eab24.png11,677 of 15,000 Signatures
