Equalities - How to get involved!

Equality is at the heart of UNISON. We challenge discrimination and win equality in the workplace and beyond. Everyone shares responsibility for equality in UNISON. But our equality work includes groups for members who experience particular types of prejudice and discrimination.

These groups meet locally and nationally to discuss, campaign and organise around the specific issues that affect them. They help UNISON understand equality and meet our equality aims.

If you would like to know more about getting involved in equalities within the branch or if you would like more information about the Self Organised Groups you can contact the branch on 0113 245 8442 or e-mail them at branch@leedsunison.org.uk.

UNISON women campaign in a self-organised group for equality in the workplace and for improvements to women's rights in the workplace and in the wider community.

Black Members
Black members in UNISON play a key role in winning equality in the workplace,
actively challenge racism wherever it is found, and are at the forefront of UNISON's organising work. As black members in UNISON we work together to win positive change in the workplace. The more of us that are actively involved the stronger we become.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members
UNISON fights discrimination and prejudice in the workplace on behalf of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members. We work together in local and national groups of LGBT members to campaign and provide support for our members.
