The results of a nationwide survey of hundreds of hospitality workers carried out by the IUF-affiliated United Voice in Australia show that 89% of the survey respondents report being sexually harassed at work, with 19% reporting sexual assaults. Only one third of those who took part in the survey believed their employer took sexual harassment at the workplace seriously, with nearly half believing they did not.

The union has announced it will be calling for "crisis talks" with employers and hospitality workers on measures to make workplaces safer.
