Equality is at the heart of everything we do at Unite in Wales. As a trade union, the fight to end discrimination both in the workplace and wider society is at our very core. Dignity and respect at work and in the local community is what defines us as a civilised society.
Unite Wales champions LGBT rights, a stop to age discrimination, a better deal for younger people, women’s rights, fairness and dignity for disabled people, justice for migrant workers, an end to prejudice against black and ethnic minority people and much, much more. We are also committed to a greater diversity of representation at every level of Welsh life.
Central to the structures of Unite Wales are our equalities committees:
- Retired members
- Young members (Under 30)
- Women members
- Black and Ethnic Minority members
- LGBT members
- Disabled members
Unite Wales’ equality committees lead on a number of campaigns - from decent apprenticeships for young people to the care of older people and fighting the UK government cuts that are hitting women hardest – issues that don’t stop at office door or the factory gate but that impact on our daily lives wherever we are in Wales.
