Tools for Creating a Safer Workplace

For Unions

What Unions Can Do

Unions recognize partner violence as a health and safety issue which affects the lives of their members. Recognizing partner violence as an issue for working persons fits within unions' long history of fighting for social justice, for respect for labor, and for civil and human rights. The attached brochure--compiled by the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees--is a very useful resource that provides specifics about how to address partner violence with union members in the workplace, as well as templates for contract language, newsletter articles and other sample documents.
