"International co-op movement adopts declaration on decent work", 6 December 2018

The International Co-operative Alliance has committed to promoting a decent working environment and zero tolerance for harassment.

Its members adopted the Declaration on Decent Work and Against Harassment unanimously at their General Assembly in Buenos Aires, Argentina...

The declaration defends the basic principles of dignity and equality in the new and emerging forms of employment; prohibits within its sphere of influence all sexual harassment; and strongly opposes every other kind of workplace misconduct, including intimidation, oppression and discrimination, as well as any abuse of power.
