We are proud of the diversity of the Community membership, representing and welcoming members and their families across all industries, sectors and regions of the UK. Equality and diversity is at the core of our mission to create a better working world.
Our equalities groups are made up of:
- Women workers
- Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) workers
- Disabled workers
- Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) workers
- Young workers
We organise with these groups because we know discrimination still exists at work and in society, and it is our mission to fight this. Women, LGBT+, disabled, BAME and young people are more likely to be paid less, more likely to be harassed and less likely to be promoted. When bad times hit, these groups of people are the ones most likely to be affected. That’s why equality work is so important to trade unions and goes to the heart of our purpose.
We campaign locally and nationally by working with employers and government to represent members’ needs, negotiate vital equalities policy and advise members on issues of importance. Our team of Community National Officers, Regional Representatives and local branch Equalities Reps are always on hand to fight for the rights of our members.
Together, we are delivering a more equal and fairer world of work, and we want you to join us. Find out more about our equalities work below, and the opportunities available for you to get involved.
