UNISON Scotland LGBT+ Committee

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are still denied equality in the workplace – too often we face discrimination and harassment instead of a fair deal. Joining UNISON gives you a voice in Britain’s biggest public services union, which is committed to working for LGBT+ rights.

Lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people in UNISON organise locally and nationally to support each other, to identify discrimination, to increase awareness of LGBT+ rights and to campaign for change. The UNISON group voted in 2005 to become an LGBT group and in 2019 to be LGBT+, and we are working to build bisexual and transgender members and issues into the core of our group. Together we can speak up for our rights at work and improve each other’s lives.
