LGBT+ organisation

LGBT+LGBT+ group meetings

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. There are LGBT+ committees and conferences at UK and Scottish level and provision for an LGBT+ group at branch level. Contact the branch here if you would like to get involved.
