UCU LGBT conference

The UCU union has organised a series of equality conferences in recent weeks.

At the LGBT conference last Saturday, delegates discussed how to raise the profile of LGBT work in the union and more widely.

A key issue was how to mobilise members to go beyond the framework of legal rights and duties on employers to how we tackle homophobia and our oppression in society.

Delegates recognised that a great opportunity to begin raising and discussing these ideas in our colleges and universities is to get branches on board, hopefully working with student and other campus unions, for the LGBT History Month in February.
