UNISON fights discrimination and prejudice in the workplace on behalf of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) members. Our Branch campaigns and provides support for our members.
Despite many wins in the fight for LGBT+ equality over the years, there are still many battles to be won. Most notably is the fight for Trans Rights.
Across the board, Trans people face discrimination and workplaces are no different unfortunately. Our branch remains committed to ensure that Trans people feel included at work, without facing discrimination based on their identity. We work to ensure that people are better educated about the struggles Trans people face, and support Trans and other LGBT+ members when they face discrimination at work.
Our branch has worked to bring Pride events to Surrey, and continues to support LGBT+ people in workplaces across the county, through our branch LGBT+ officer.
If you feel passionately about LGBT+ issues, or if you feel that you have been affected by an issue, please get in contact with us.
