Workplace Sexual Harassment and Assault Overview and Definitions

Sexual Harassment Counselling Information

If you experience or witness bullying or harassment of any kind in the workplace, you must report it. It’s the law. We can guide performers through the process to report a witness account too.
Call us during business hours, or email the reporting line, anytime: report.it@ubcp.com

The Union has formed a Sexual Harassment Task Force which is looking at initiatives to:
-Protect our Members in coaching and teaching environments
-Reduce barriers to reporting sexual harassment
-Protect and support young performers
-Improve our collective agreements and legislation
-Create a Member to Member support structure for those who have experienced sexual harassment or assault
-Liaise with Worksafe BC to step up film set monitoring of harassment protocols and orientation.

If you have any suggestions that you would like the Task Force to consider, please send an email to sue.brouse@ubcp.com or call Sue at 604-689-0727 X2257

If harassment occurs outside of the workplace there are resources available to you:
Consider reporting to the police. We understand that idea may cause concern as victims have been put through
intense victim blaming and disbelief. However, the times are changing and there may be more support now than
ever before.

Women may contact WAVAW (Women Against Violence Against Women) for guidance and support.
