Trade unions exist to improve the working lives of their members. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers face harassment and discrimination. It’s hard to deal with this on your own. Joining UNISON gives you a voice in the UK’s largest public service union, committed to working for LGBT rights. LGBT members organise locally and nationally to support each other, to identify and challenge discrimination, to increase awareness of LGBT rights and to campaign for change.
The LGBT officer has access to resources specific to sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace.
See the UNISON LGBT self-organised group for more information.
