In July 2021, the regional groups of the Media, Entertainment and Arts sector of UNI Global Union (UNI Americas MEI/Panartes) and of the International Federation of Actors (FIA-LA) together with their affiliated organizations launched an online survey on violence and harassment in the workplace in the audiovisual and performing arts industries in Latin America.
This page shares the findings of the survey and the campaign material created on the basis of those results. Each union is invited to use it to spread awareness and initiate change at the national and regional level.
