Decision
Carried

Conference welcomes the comprehensive consultation exercise on a possible extension of the lesbian and gay group to include bisexual and transgender members and the report that has been produced as result of that exercise.

This Conference believes the UNISON lesbian and gay self-organised group should become a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender self-organised group, and that the rules should be changed to facilitate this.

Conference instructs the National Lesbian and Gay Committee to:

1.draw up practical proposals for the implementation of this change;

2.to consult widely on these proposals;

3.actively encourage the involvement of bisexual and transgender members in the consultation that takes place;

4.bring recommendations on changes to the group’s organisation and structure for approval at the 12th UNISON Lesbian and Gay Conference.
