A Discussion Guide for Unions

Talking with workers about domestic violence, in a safe and supportive environment facilitates both learning and the ability to take action. It is with this in mind that we prepared this guide to help union members and representatives prepare and stage a discussion on the topic, in tandem with the public release of the documentary film “A Better Man”.

A Better Man can inspire courageous conversations about intimate partner violence, justice and healing. The CLC Discussion Guide for Unions can support those conversations with questions, activities and resources to spark reflection among workers and their unions. It can also provide unions the opportunity to talk with workers and union representatives about their roles in ending gender-based violence and responding to that violence when it follows people into the workplace.

Below, you will find more information about the film A Better Man including detailed information about how to organize and prepare for a community screening and discussion about the subject of gender-based violence. We encourage you to explore these resources. The film itself can be viewed via live streaming from TVOntario. A French-language (sub-titled) version of A Better Man (Un homme meilleur) is also available by request from now through December 10, 2017: please contact
