In the way we organise ourselves and campaign we always strive to ensure we are representing all of our members.
Our equality officers work with members to promote equality and tackle discrimination in the workplace, society and the wider world.
We are committed to ensuring those members in groups currently under-represented in our union’s structures are encouraged and supported to play a full and active role.
We run four national forums for women, black, disabled, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members, which meet regularly to share information and ideas, and advise the national executive on policy.
