Labor union women commit to broadening fight against sexual harassment


"WASHINGTON (PAI)—The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) is committing itself to broadening the fight against sexual harassment and exploitation on the job.

That includes working with the National Women’s Law Center, the Restaurant Opportunities Center, and other individual unions to spotlight the frequent sexual exploitation of woman workers in industries other than movies and politics, and use of power by supervisors at all levels.

“Sexual harassment is an expression of power and CLUW is committed to putting our collective power to fight for real and measurable progress,” the organization, an AFL-CIO affinity group, said in a statement on its website.

CLUW’s decision came in the wake of the appearance of two prominent woman labor leaders, Ai-Jen Poo of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Saru Jayaraman, at the Jan. 7 Golden Globes Awards—where empowering women to fight such exploitation was a major theme.

In solidarity with exploited women, and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, all but three women at the Golden Globes wore black."
