Contact the SUD Education Monitoring Unit

Who can contact the Monitoring Unit?

You were a victim or witness of gender-based or sexual violence in one (at least) of the following cases:

  • The attacker is a member of SUD education.
    OR
  • You are a member of SUD education and the attack took place in an activist context (training, demonstration, etc.).

If you are not in one of these situations, you can contact the union in your department.

How to enter the tracking cell?

First, you can go to the supervision department in your department. If there is no supervision department or if you do not want to call it, you can contact the federal supervision department, in the evening by e-mail (cellulevss.mandat (at) sudeducation.org) or by this form or by phone from Monday to Friday from 9 to 17 hours (except autumn and final school holidays) on the number: 07 56 91 71 08.

Why enter the clock cell?

You can contact the monitoring unit to get accompaniment, listening and support in the situation of which you have been a victim or a witness.

The monitoring unit aims to enable any victim who has suffered sexist or sexual violence, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, to reach out to them and find the means to protect themselves within an activist environment. This must be possible regardless of the situation, whether the victim and/or the accused is a member of one of our trade unions or not.

Not replacing justice, but not relying only on it, the cell supports the victims and follows the federation, so that it can assume its responsibilities. This includes the federation doing everything it can to prevent and stop sexist behavior and sexual assault, and intervening within the legal and/or regulatory framework against member attackers.

After the form, you will find all the information about the functioning of the federal surveillance unit.

How does the tracking station work?

1. First contact with the victim or witness via e-mail and/or phone. If the person who contacted the monitoring unit is a witness, the unit will contact the victim. If the victim does not want to take action, the monitoring unit will advise and refer them to competent associations or structures. At any point it is the victim who decides to continue or
and not support process stages. (However, if the victim is a minor, the cell can be confiscated without the victims testifying. In this case, indirect testimonies will be relied upon.)

2. Creation of a support group according to the needs and wishes of the person who contacted the unit (3 people including a maximum of one cisgender man). At any time, the victim can challenge all or part of the members in charge of the case, as many times as he wants. The cell then proposes members to replace the rejected persons.

3. The unit presents three members responsible for victim support and offers an interview. The latter can be accompanied, and she is the one who chooses the method of collecting words: by phone or face to face, in a place of her choice. During the first interview, the unit collects the victim’s words and provides support. He also shows him how to do it. The cell is available to the victim for further interviews.

4. If the victim accepts, the monitoring unit will support them in the following stages (at any time it is the victim who chooses whether or not to continue the stages of the support process):

have. The unit compiles a file that will contain a description of the facts, their consequences for the victim, qualification of the facts and recommendations for the union. The unit may be asked to conduct other interviews with the victim in order to provide them with the best support, and will also have an advisory role in possible legal proceedings, psychological support, support from local associations, etc. The Alliance Monitoring Unit may request financial assistance (psychological care, legal expenses, etc.).

b. Activation of the cell causes immediate suspension of the attacker from his federal mandates and his presence in federal bodies and training, and this for the entire working hours of the cell.
the day before. The monitoring unit will contact the local union and inform them of what they think is most appropriate for the victim.

in relation to the Unit informs the attacker that it is compiling a file and indicates the nature of the facts for which it is charged. She collects his words in order to measure his demeanor and his level of consciousness: it is not an adversarial procedure, and therefore it is not a question of receiving his testimony in such a way that it is given the same weight as the victim’s statement in the “word against word” system. . If there is
several accused, the cell hears them separately. The unit may collect statements if it deems it necessary for the preparation of files.

d. The unit establishes a file with objectified and anonymized facts and recommendations, which it forwards to decision-making bodies in the alliance so that they can make an informed decision. They decide on the decision(s) concerning the aggressor. These decisions can be, in a non-exhaustive manner:

    • Apologies, private and/or public, oral and/or written, with recognition of the sexist nature of the act
    • Obligation to attend a course on SGBV (at the attacker’s expense)
    • Prohibition on use of federal email lists
    • Federal requirement
    • Exclusion from federal authorities and/or formations (temporary or final)
