April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

A study by the Centers for Disease Control indicates that sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence are widespread in the United States among both women and men.

Did You Know?

  • 1.3 million women were raped during the year preceding the survey.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 women have been raped in their lifetime while 1 in 71 men have been raped in their lifetime.
  • More than half (51.1%) of female victims of rape reported being raped by an intimate partner and 40.8% by an acquaintance; for male victims, more than half (52.4%) reported being raped by an acquaintance and 15.1% by a stranger.

At CLUW's Women's Leadership Skills Training Conference held last week (March 27-29) in Chicago one of the workshops conducted by representatives from Futures Without Violence was: "When Members Experience Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking: The Role of the Union".

One of their partner projects is Workplaces Respond to Domestic and Sexual Violence

Don't Let Staples Destroy Your Post Office

Staples has initiated a pilot program across the country in 80 of their stores where they have collaborated with USPS to open up Postal Retail centers using Staples employees instead of Postal workers.  Staples is walmartizing their employees and together with USPS are trying to take away good union jobs and moving yet another step towards privatizing the Postal Service.  USPS needs to expand their retail services, but not at the expense of Postal workers.  Add your name to the Stop Staples Petition by clicking here.
