WE’RE WORKING ON IT: Potential harassment in the workplace

GSU staff representative Mason Van Luven was contacted about potential harassment taking place in the workplace after management ignored a member’s request for union representation. The subject matter of the meetings is under consideration. 

“Workers are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace, and that goes beyond steel-toe boots and hardhats” said Van Luven. “Employers must maintain a psychologically healthy workplace.”

As a rule of thumb, if an employer has requested to speak with you, reach out to your shop steward or staff representative for representation. 

With GSU you have access to specialized services that could be difficult to obtain on your own. A GSU staff rep has access to information and can help gather all the facts and identify whether your rights have been violated.

These services are provided to you and paid for by your union dues. There is never an additional charge for assisting you.
