LGBT

LGBT equality in the workplace continues to be hard fought for.  Many LGBT workers face harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. 

We are raising awareness and campaigning for LGBT equality, and encourage LGBT workers to join and become active in our union.

Take a no deal Brexit off the table

Millions of livelihoods and the future of manufacturing communities across the UK are hanging in the balance. The game of playing roulette with people’s lives needs to end. A no-deal Brexit needs to be taken off the table and a deal secured which ensures an on-going customs arrangement and tariff free, frictionless trade secured."
