CNV Internationaal issues a research report on violence against women in the workplace. The extensive research included different forms of violence against women at the work place, physical, psychological and verbal sexual harassment, varying from (atemps) for rape, to gossiping with sexual content and from "accidental' body contact, to promises for promotion in return for sexual favor. Research was done in four countries on four different continents: Honduras (Latin America), Indonesia (Asia), Moldova (Eastern Europe) and Benin (Africa).
The report was presented to Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), who received the report from CNV vice president Arend van Wijngaarden.
Together with the ITUC, CNV Internationaal calls for better regulation through the ILO (the UN labour organisation).
