Trade union to examine victimisation of women in construction

A study into levels of harassment, discrimination and bullying experienced by women construction workers has been launched by trade union the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (Ucatt).

Ucatt has launched its project with a confidential online survey, accessible here, to gather information about the experiences of women working in construction.

“Construction has a very poor record for treating workers with dignity and respect,” said Ucatt acting general secretary George Guy. “Anecdotally it appears that women construction workers are even more vulnerable to experiencing bullying and harassment.

“This survey will discover if that is indeed the case. All workers have the right to work without being victimised and harassed.” The survey closes on November 25.
