SGIP Macedonia on IWD 2018

13 March 2018 14:45



My name is Elizabeta Paneska, I am the main trade representative of the unio organization in the company Gradezen Institut (Institute for Civil Engineering) Macedonia from Skopje. Also, I am a member of the Council and the Executive Committee of the Union of SGIP.

Nowadays SGIP’s women have bigger participation in the bodies as a result of the policies implemented by SGIP referring to the documents adopted at the 4th BWI Congress for Gender Equality.

Women have been actively involved in the activities of SGIP mainly in the implementation of workers' rights.

A large number of women have been hired to work on construction sites with a high degree of risk. Apart from the complex working conditions today, women often suffer from physical and psychological harassment and violence.

SGIP's women condemn every harassment and violence at the workplace for all workers and are active in their elimination. The Union of SGIP strongly supports the activities of BWI to adopt the ILO convention “Violence and harassment against women and men in the world of work”

The power of women - Stop gender based violence at work.

Happy 8th of March to all women! Together we are stronger.
