Attention all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) UNISON members!!

You are cordially invited to a LGBT meeting at 10.30am on Saturday 9th September. This will be followed by FREE lunch and refreshments. This will take place at the UNISON office, 6 Darnell Way, Northampton, NN3 6RW.

This meeting is part of the Self Organised Group (SOG) for members who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Trans (LGBT). The purpose is to encourage members to become more involved in the union, and support UNISONs objectives to defend jobs, terms and conditions and services. It is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss concerns at work.

Donna Rebouse, Co-Convenor of the UNISON East Midlands LGBT Regional group, will be joining us to talk about her role and what inspired her to get more involved in UNISON.

We can all do our bit to fight discrimination, help co-workers to tackle problems, and promote the benefits of joining UNISON. This will be discussed at the meeting. You can do as much or as little as you like, develop new skills, and most importantly enjoy yourself! 😊

For catering purposes, please confirm your attendance by contacting Ben King (LGBT Officer): Email HealthSafety@northantsunison.co.uk or phone 01604 670400.
