The last few years have seen an increase in the amount and complexity of equalities issues at work. Union reps need to be able to keep up to date with equality legislation and handle issues such as flexible working, reasonable adjustments and discrimination. That's why unions are building the role of equality reps to help make workplaces fairer and more equality aware.
This training course will train equality reps in their new role and help them get to grips with the new and changing equality agenda. Equality reps can promote fairness in the workplace by raising the equality agenda among fellow workers and their own unions; by encouraging employers to make equality and diversity part of mainstream collective bargaining; by working with vulnerable workers and trying to ensure that every worker receives fair treatment.
This course is for existing, new or potential equality reps. They may be experienced workplace reps or new reps who want to take on this responsibility.
This course is free for all recognised union reps from TUC member unions.
This event is for NUJ members only. Please consider joining the NUJ if you would like to attend this event.
