L'Invisible qui fait mal [Invisible that hurts]

The interdisciplinary team L’invisible qui fait mal concentrates its research efforts on women's work and in particular on its least visible, most problematic aspects.  The objective of our research:  to describe faithfully the arduous tasks done by an increasing number of women and the difficulties they encounter when they try to claim their rights to health and safety at work.  We want to help them in their efforts to find solutions to these problems.

The research results of L’invisible qui fait mal are increasingly recognized and valued.  Some of them, centred on stress and musculoskeletal problems, directly concern all workers in the fast-growing service sector.

The team is composed of university researchers and of representatives from the women's committees and health and safety committees of the three major union federations in Québec:  the Centrale des syndicats du Québec, the Confédération des syndicats nationaux, and the Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec.
