And we have at least two socials each year. Next is a ‘Let’s ride the tram for a curry in Newhaven’ on Friday 7 September. Plan is Dreadnought pub from 1700 and Rishi’s Indian from 1830. Contact LGBTPlus@unison-edinburgh.org.uk if you’re joining us!
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.
