UK Main Opposition Leader Wants Unions to Be Used in Ending Sexual Harassment

LONDON – The leader of the United Kingdom’s main opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, called on Monday on business leaders to engage with trade unions in order to tackle sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace.

Corbyn addressed the thorny topic while delivering a speech at the Confederation of British Industry’s annual conference amid a slew of allegations leveled at lawmakers and others in positions of power in the UK parliament.

“Businesses can have a vital partner in rooting out injustice in the workplace – trade unions,” said Corbyn. “They are crucial to taking on and rooting out sexual harassment and discrimination.”

Among other topics, including his vision for the UK’s future economy, Corbyn spoke about the growing scandal within Westminster, which has resulted in the suspension or resignation of several politicians over alleged sexual harassment.

The Labour leader urged businesses to “engage with trade unions” in order to improve workplace culture and tackle sexual discrimination.

“Such abuse, sexism and misogyny is, sadly, very far from being confined to Hollywood and the corridors of power,” Corbyn continued, adding that it was also prevalent in places of study, businesses, “in our newspapers and on our TV screens.”

Corbyn was due to meet Prime Minister Theresa May along with the leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable in order to devise a roadmap on how best to tackle the situation within Parliament.
