Menopause at work

We are campaigning for better support for members going through the menopause. With women living and staying in work for longer, menopause has become a workplace issue and many of our members will be are going through menopause themselves. With one in four women experiencing menopause, this has become a trade union issue. However, with the right support in place, menopause can be managed and those suffering with it can be supported.

 

You can read more here about why it is important to have a menopause policy in place and here for the difference that it can make.

It all starts with ensuring that each workplace has a menopause strategy in place. We are calling on workplaces to:

  • Agree to tweak workplace policies such as uniform to help deal with hot flushes.
  • Support for lifestyle changes to support members suffering with anxiety or depression through their menopause.
