LGBT Members

This branch has no LGBT Members Officer at the moment – could you do this?

Please contact the branch for further information.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Members Officer

The LGBT Officer will:

1. Organise the branch self-organised groups (SOG) for LGBT members who wish to be active in dealing with LGBT issues in the workplace and in society.

2. Assist, support and advise LGBT members who are having difficulty at work and who are not out.

Work with:

  • Members who are LGBT, other UNISON LGBT and core structures, equality officers, branch reps and branch officers as necessary, regional and national officers, the employer, external LGBT bodies.


  • Self-organised group meetings that they may organise, UNISON LGBT and other committees and annual conferences to which they may be nominated, branch executive committee, annual general meeting, special general meeting.

Equality in the workplace

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 union, which is committed to working for LGBT rights.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members organise locally and nationally to support each other, to identify and challenge discrimination, to increase awareness of LGBT rights and to campaign for change.
