AFSCME President Lee Saunders and Secretary-Treasurer Elissa McBride are joined by AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler, Jobs With Justice Executive Director Sarita Gupta, and National Women’s Law Center President Fatima Goss Graves to discuss the pervasive harassment both women and men confront at work and strategies to fight back.
The #MeToo movement has brought some much needed public attention to the subject of workplace sexual harassment. Unions have long been at the forefront in the fight for equality on the job — including an end to the culture of pervasive harassment.
This discussion focused on getting answers and advice on dealing with and preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, your rights on the job, and our fight for equality in the workplace.
