Disabled Members

Unite opposes discrimination against disabled men and women, and supports practical action for disability equality. Our union represents many disabled workers in workplaces throughout industry, and including in Remploy and supported employment. 

Challenging discrimination, bullying and harassment of disabled people in the workplace, disability hate crime in the community and winning real equality of opportunity is a priority for our union.

By joining Unite you too can get involved in achieving this aim.
