TRADE unionists in Sheffield marked International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women yesterday with a commitment to “call it out — and stop it!”
Sheffield Trades Union Council (TUC) said that male violence and sexual harassment of women has increased during the coronavirus lockdowns.
Up to 85 per cent of young women in low-paid work have experienced sexual harassment or abuse at work, according to a survey by Sheffield TUC.
Sheffield TUC secretary Martin Mayer said: “All too often it’s the boss or the manager/supervisor, abusing his power over his low-paid female workers who often feel powerless or too frightened/ashamed to speak out.
“Our Sheffield Needs a Pay Rise campaign is actively working with young workers in our fast food, pub and hospitality sector where such abuse is all too common.
“We are determined to stamp it out and ensure all workers are treated with respect at work.
“The best protection comes from joining a trade union which can hold employers to account and ensure guilty managers and co-workers can be held to account.”
