Facility Time for Lesbian and Gay Activists

Back to all Motions

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

Conference agrees that lesbian and gay work within the union should have equal status with branch stewards’ and health and safety work and the work of those involved in other self organised groups and should therefore be afforded facility time.

Conference calls on the General Secretary to write to all branches reiterating the above and urging them to negotiate facility time agreements for lesbian & gay work and the work of the other self organised groups and facilities for disabled lesbian and gay activists.

Consideration should be given to using the new employment equality regulations against employers who refuse such time.
