A Women’s Advocate is a specially trained workplace representative who assists women with concerns such as workplace harassment, intimate violence and abuse. The Women’s Advocate is not a counsellor but rather provides support for women accessing community and workplace resources.
These specially-trained, easy to contact workplace representatives have been instrumental in creating healthier workplaces and safer communities. We work closely with management ensuring strong cooperation to achieve this goal.
One of the best tools the union has to prevent violence against women and workplace harassment is the Women’s Advocate program.
