At the very least, contact your union rep to see what options are available. Put those dues to work for you in a different way. Don't delay, don't send the letter, don't involve your husband in the complaint. Be direct; be strong; be safe.

It should be directed to management and should not involve your husband, since he has nothing to do with this. What is your husband going to do if it doesn't stop?Management has a legal duty to investigate any complaints of sexual harassment. It is their job to deal with your co-worker, not yours. You could be putting yourself in danger, since sexual harrassment tends to progress. It already involves touching. It is not about sex, but about control and power. I think it is a good idea to put your complaints in writing (wouldn't hurt to have legal advise on this) You should work your way up the management chain and contact human resources. This guy should be terminated.

You tell some one once it becomes harrassment, then harrassment becomes assault; may not be legal but makes sense to me.

If this was outside of work and you were my wife, this guy would no longer have "hands." Assault and battery are crimes punishable by jail time.
