Submission: Consultation on Interpersonal Violence and Employment Leaves

Submission: Consultation on Interpersonal Violence and Employment Leaves

Answer

SEIU-West was invited by the Minister of Labour Relations & Workplace Safety to participate in the consultation process on interpersonal violence and the impact in the workplace.

SEIU-West’s Young Worker Committee (YWC) has worked tirelessly with other allies in the community, including the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) and Provincial Association of Transition Houses & Services of Saskatchewan (PATHS) to raise public awareness about domestic violence. Together, we see the need for improved workplace safety and secure funding for those agencies who provide necessary community supports for the victims of domestic violence.

This report was submitted on July 20, 2017 on behalf of SEIU-West and our YWC.
