No to Violence Against Women 2013

This article is taken from the International Transport Worker's Federation Website

The 25th of November is an important day for ITF affiliates worldwide. It marks the day that the ITF family campaigns for the elimination of violence against women. Following the success of last year's campaign the message for this year will remain the same: ‘NO to Violence Against Women’.

THIS YEAR’S CAMPAIGN: NO to Violence Against Women

Declaring NO to violence against women is the first step in dealing with the issue. What needs to follow is strategic and coordinated union action – activities, collective bargaining outcomes, union and workplace policies and procedures, support networks, facilities for women, appointing Women’s Officers, creating Women’s Committees and networks and many other actions. Transport unions across the globe have and continue to respond to this issue. It is a collective union responsibility that requires a collective union response.

What can you and your union do?
