The union for Canada’s television and film performers says it’s speeding up its discipline processes – for sexual harassment and assault complaints from members.
Teresa Tova, the president of the Toronto chapter of ACTRA – says the union wants to “investigate and get things happening” on serious cases within 48 hours.
Tova says “many” members are now calling about situations they’ve never reported before – and some cases “are now going forward.”
The comments came today at a panel discussion on sexual harassment – presented by the organization behind the Toronto International Film Festival.
