The Women’s Committee campaign for improvements to women’s rights in the workplace and in the wider community and support campaigns aimed at improving women’s lives – for example, to change the law to protect women experiencing domestic violence, or to raise awareness of health issues which mainly affect women.
The Women’s Committee meet on a regular basis to develop policies, promote equality and encourage wider participation of women members at all levels of the union. The Committee also provide a number of courses for women each year such as, ‘Women’s History’, ‘Assertiveness Skills’, ‘Women, Work and Health’ – for more information please see the Regional Education programme.
UNISON supports networks of self organised groups (SOGs) in
branches and regions across the union. Our SOGs campaign for
equality in the workplace and for improvements to legislation for
workplaces and the wider community. The SOGs are represented
at Regional Council and most other regional committees, but are
accountable to their respective national group.
