Tackling Violence in the Health Sector - A Trade Union Response

16 April, 2018
This report on trade union preparedness and actions to tackle violence against women and men in the world of work, was first released in 2016. In 2018, an updated version of the study is being released, integrating the latest achievements of our affiliated unions in the health sector. The workers, many of whom are women, daily face ever-increasing levels of violence and harassment in the world of work. They respond and deliver quality service with deepest commitment and ethical principles.
The study deeply contributes to the international trade union movement’s campaign for the adoption of a new ILO Convention and Recommendation on Violence and Harassment in the World of Work. The first discussion will take place in the International Labour Conference (ILC) in 2018 and will for sure finally succeed in the ILC of 2019, shining a bright light on the centenary celebrations of the International Labour Organization.
