Ucatt investigates harassment of women in construction

14 Nov 11 Construction union Ucatt has launched an investigation into the extent that women are harassed, bullied or discriminated against in the construction industry.

Ucatt is asking all female construction workers to participate in a confidential online survey, which can be accessed here.

The survey forms part of Ucatt’s Union Modernisation Fund project.

Acting general secretary George Guy said: “Construction has a very poor record for treating workers with dignity and respect. 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.

“In the 21st century all workers have the right to work without being victimised and harassed. That includes all construction workers, regardless of gender, race, religion or sexuality.”

The survey closes on 25 November.
