Domestic Violence

Back to all Motions

2003 National Lesbian & Gay Conference
1 August 2003
Carried as Amended

Conference notes with concern that reported incidents of domestic violence are increasing, and that these figures reflect an increase in the incidences of same-sex domestic violence.

Conference therefore calls on the National Lesbian and Gay Committee to;

1.urge the National Executive Council (NEC) to issue guidelines to Branches to ensure that issues of same-sex violence are included in the development of agreements dealing with domestic violence in the workplace;

2.urge the NEC to take the necessary measures to ensure that Stewards and Branch Officers have access to relevant training to enable them to deal appropriately with all lesbian or gay members who are subject to domestic violence.
