Disabled people experience discrimination at work. UNISON challenges discriminatory actions and campaigns for a fair deal for disabled members.
UNISON supports the Social Model of Disability. We believe it is the way society organises that creates barriers to inclusion and prevents disabled people from taking an equal part in life. As a union we campaign on important issues such as:
- Inaccessible workplaces
- Information systems that don’t include disabled people’s access needs
- Negative attitudes and prejudices from employers
UNISON’s priorities on disability are led by the union’s own disabled members. Our union is committed to taking on the issues from those who know them best.
The branch can send a delegate to the London Region Disabled Members Committee, its Annual General Meeting is held in September.
UNISON organises a National conference each year for disabled members, every branch can send delegates. .
