Third party violence, which is the violence carried out by customers, clients, patients, service providers, etc; can have serious consequences for workers in all sectors.
From absenteeism to high employee turnover, from loss of productivity and income; violence and harassment in the world of work affects us all.
These 16 days we want to focus on third party violence and raise our voices on the need for the ratification of Convention 190 and Recommendation 206, and for better and more comprehensive policies and collective agreements that enshrine the spirit of these international tools protecting all workers from all forms of violence and harassment in the world of work.
On this 25th of November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls) and for the next 16 days, we will be campaigning to make ILO Convention 190 a reality.
This ground breaking instrument protects all workers, irrespective of the contractual status; covers all sectors and widens the scope of action to the world of work, which is larger than the actual workplace and includes things like meetings, going to and from the place of work, etc.
Join us these 16 days of activism and share our posters and posts with your unions and your affiliates and share them on your social media. Together we are stronger.
Together we can make C190 happen!

Violence has a serious impact on long term mental health.
From PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) to depression and anxiety, it impacts our well-being and makes us more likely to abuse substances. It reduces our potential and limits our productivity and contributions to our communities.
In other words, there is no mental health with violence and the COVID-19 pandemic has made this problem worse.
As UNI and as unions we can help. We can raise awareness on this issue and support our unions and governments in the adoption of an ILO Convention and Recommendation to eliminate violence against women and men in the world of work.
For this reason, we would like to invite you to join us in this new stage of our Breaking the Circle campaign – There is no mental health with violence. Share our posters for each day, as well as our infographic and ask your unions to do the same and to tag us. And don’t forget to use the hashtags! #ratifyILO190 #16days
LGBTI+ RIGHTS ARE A
LGBTI+ workers still suffer labour disparities and discrimination because of their sexual orientation or identity. These range from income disparity to workplace harassment, from unfair treatment at work to discrimination when applying for a job. In times of crisis, such as the one we are currently experiencing, this situation worsens.

ILO CONVENTION 190
ON VIOLENCE AND HARASSMENT
I CAN CHANGE LIVES!
Violence and harassment in the world of work can happen everywhere – online, in the physical workplace, during the commute, where workers rest, eat or attend to their health and sanitation needs, as well as at social gatherings.
In June 2019, the International Labour Conference said STOP to violence and harassment in the world of work by adopting a ground-breaking international tool, Convention 190 (C190) and a Recommendation 206 (R206).
C190 PROVIDES A MOMENTUM FOR TRADE UNIONS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS TO FIGHT VIOLENCE AND HARASSMENT IN THE WORLD OF WORK.
LET’S USE IT NOW!
Let’s campaign for the ratification of C190!
C 190 can change lives! Let’s see how during the 16 days of activism.

Media has the power to influence billions and billions of people, entire societies. But unfortunately media is plagued with gender stereotypes that affect the public perception of reality. Stereotypes affects us all; particularly women. Their use installs concepts of what to expect of women and of what women can expect of themselves.
So, if media has the incredible effect of being able to influence billions of people around the world, it also has the power to mold and change the reality around us. And this can be dangerous, particularly when it comes to issues like stereotypes.
This year we will focus our Break the Circle against Violence campaign on a different type of violence against women: violence in the media and how the stereotypes often seen on television, printed press, etc., are determining the way we think and the way we act, establishing patterns that contribute to violence. Let´s change the media. Let´s change reality.
This year we wanted it to raise awareness on the fact that gender violence is a problem that concerns both men and women, and we wanted to focus on the role of men and include them as agents of change. This is why we decided to call this year's campaign: "BE MAN ENOUGH. BE A LEADER AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE".
We have developed a series of tools and information that will help us spread the message and raise awareness.
Spread the word!
Be an agent of change. BE MAN ENOUGH. BE A LEADER AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE.
The Equal Opportunities office at UNI is launching the second part of Break the Circle! Campaign against gender violence.
This time the campaign is focused on violence at work.
The aim of this campaign is to discuss and reflect on the necessary elements for work violence to exist, and detect ways in which organizations provoke its presence.
The Equal Opportunities office at UNI is launching the Break the Circle! Campaign against gender violence. As gender inequality causes gender violence, and violence only increases inequality, help us Break the Circle!
The campaign objective is not only to reflect on gender violence and its causes but also to provide action tools to the true protagonists of this change: men and women who, day in day out, struggle for a fairer and more equitable world for all.
We hope this campaign reaches every corner of the planet. For this to happen, we count on everybody’s support
