National Survey on Workplace Violence and Harassment

Harassment and violence are a serious health and safety issue that have no place in the workplace.

We need to do something about it.

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) has launched a national survey to gauge the severity and measure the response to violence and harassment in Canada’s workplaces. The survey is being conducted by researchers from Western University and the University of Toronto.

The Steelworkers union is encouraging all USW members to take part in the online survey.

If you work, take the survey.

The national survey will look at the experience of both unionized and non-unionized workers in an attempt to uncover why employees choose to report or not report, and whether there is a difference between their experiences.

All workers, of any gender, are encouraged to fill it out, whether or not they have personally experienced or witnessed violence and harassment at work.

The survey is open to workers 18 years of age or older. It takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete. All respondents will remain anonymous. The survey runs until April 2021.

We are asking every worker to take this survey to help us learn what works when it comes to stopping harassment and violence in the workplace.
