Harassment is an unacceptable workplace practice and your union will support your efforts to deal with it. These pages aim at providing basic information about these practices and the options for recourse that are available to you. Links to sites with additional information are also offered.
If you believe you are being harassed, there are steps you should take immediately. First, record the behaviour of the harasser in a diary or journal, noting the dates, times and locations of incidents as well as any witnesses to the events. Solid evidence is required to support a harassment complaint, so build your file carefully. Second, resist all temptation to retaliate against the harasser; if you do, you may be seen as the perpetrator, not the harasser. Third, contact the union for help. Speak to a steward or local officer; if they need further assistance, they can consult with union staff representatives. >>
