The second training for employees on the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace was held on October 6 in the CITUB building. The topic was developed by Violeta Ivanova, Deputy. Director of the Institute for Social and Trade Union Research - CITUB and Stanimira Hadjimitova, Director of the CSCD in the context of the psycho-social problems that this type of violence leads to.

Participants in the seminar were 24 healthcare workers invited by Slava Zlatanova, Deputy Chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions in Healthcare - CITUB. Mr. Plamen Nankov, Vice President of CITUB, gave a greeting.

The speakers emphasized the importance of preventing this type of violence, which can be ensured through the development of internal rules and / or policies by employers, information campaigns and training. The role of trade unions in including relevant texts in Collective Labor Agreements is also important, as is the ratification of ILO Convention 190 against Violence and Harassment in the Workplace.
