THE Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) has kicked off a campaign to expose the extent of sexual harassment in the workplace.
As part of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, the STUC women’s committee has launched a survey calling for women in Scotland to share their experiences of harassment at work as part of the research.
It comes as a TUC report revealed that more than half of women across Britain have experienced sexual harassment at work.
The STUC is hoping to use its survey’s findings in order to understand how it can be tackled most effectively in Scotland.
STUC women’s committee chair Fiona Steele said: “Sexual harassment at work might be illegal on paper, but in practice we know that sexual harassment at work is widespread and rife.
“We need urgent action on tackling sexual harassment at work, ensuring that women feel able and supported to report incidents of sexual harassment and that there is the appropriate infrastructure to protect them when they do.”
