Protecting telecommunications workers from violence & harassment

JOINT STATEMENT: Protecting telecommunications workers from violence & harassment

The social partners of the telecommunications sector, represented by the European Telecommunications Network Operators’ Association (ETNO), and UNI Europa ICTS, the European services workers’ union for workers in ICT and related services, have issued a joint statement, where they condemn any violence and harassment at the workplace. 

Lise Fuhr, Director General, ETNO,: ‘There is no place for violence at the workplace and any kind of harassment must be condemned to the fullest. It is through open and inclusive dialogue that we can fully exploit our innovative potential, strengthen our social engagements and nurture our creative thinking. Making sure that people are safe at work is central to a business’s success.’

Oliver Roething, Regional Secretary, Uni Europa: “Working together is how we address violence and harassment in the world of work. It is great to count employers in the ICT sector as partners in this crucial effort. Prevention, complaints mechanisms and effective remediation require training, enforcement and monitoring. This strong statement shows our joint resolve to achieve these objectives together,” said Oliver Roethig, Regional Secretary of UNI Europa.
