The union issued the condemnation on Monday, the day after its biennial convention at the Sheraton Universal Hotel ended and Weinstein was ousted from his own company after multiple revelations of misconduct.
“We commend the courage and candor of every woman who has spoken out about the disgraceful, aggressive, and inappropriate behavior they experienced with prominent industry employers,” the union said. “We support their right to speak out and we lift up their voices so that their truths can be fully heard. Everyone has the right to work in an environment free of discrimination and harassment.”
On Oct. 5, a story in the New York Times detailed accusations that Weinstein sexually harassed a number of women, including actress Ashley Judd. Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, and Glenn Close have all denounced the producer.
