4. identify and challenge discrimination LGBT groups have a valuable role in helping the union identify and actively challenge discrimination in our workplaces. A branch group helps inform the branch about the concerns of LGBT members and what’s really happening on the ground in workplaces. 5. promote equality, dignity and respect UNISON is committed to achieving equality in our workplaces and throughout our structures. Self-organised groups work in partnership with other parts of the union to identify and promote the equality agenda. All branches have a responsibility to make sure their activities promote equality and tackle discrimination. An LGBT group helps the branch promote UNISON’s equality aims and values and raise awareness amongst the wider membership.

Branch groups help draw up the local negotiating agenda. An LGBT group can advise on local issues of concern to LGBT members and be consulted on specific issues. 7. become more representative LGBT members, like women members, Black members, and disabled members, have traditionally been less visible in trade unions and under-represented in democratic structures. A branch LGBT group helps address this.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
