Message from Deborah Allton-Maher, Associate Executive Director

Dear AGMA Members:

Considering the recent exposure in the press of the illegal and insidious harassment by those who occupy positions of power against those who are most vulnerable, I feel compelled to reach out personally to all of our members with reassurance and support and to urge anyone who has experienced this trauma to utilize the reporting method that AGMA has provided.  All you need to do is to call me or email me to report any behavior that has made you uncomfortable, fearful or if you feel threatened in any way.

All reports are kept strictly in confidence, no names are used.  If we receive multiple reports against an individual we notify the employer(s) of the offending person to either conduct an investigation, or to take precaution against inappropriate behavior from that individual.  Member reports do not have to be limited to union employers or to sexual harassment only.

If you’re an AGMA member and you have experienced harassment in your workplace please contact me.  We can talk it through and maybe together we can make a difference.  We can’t act unless we know.

In solidarity,

Deborah
