Harassment by Supervisors

It’s sad to say, but UFT members sometimes report that supervisors have harassed them. This may take the form of sexual harassment, biased acts or remarks, public ridicule, etc. It may be due to anti-union animus, personal grudges or just power trips.

You do not have to — nor should you — tolerate such harassment or acts of intimidation. A special complaint process was negotiated in the 1990s to protect you from coercion and intimidation by your supervisors. If you believe that you are the victim of supervisory harassment, tell your chapter leader immediately.

The first thing you should do is keep an anecdotal log indicating the place, time, date and witnesses of every incident. A UFT representative can help you fight this offensive and demoralizing conduct.
