ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR STATEMENTS

Back to all Motions

Conference
Lesbian,Gay,Bisexual & Transgender Conference 2005
Date
29 July 2005
Decision
Carried

Delegates to Conference have seen the statement on acceptable behaviour issued with the Conference papers. They are also aware of a variety of acceptable behaviour statements in use across UNISON as guidance for training courses, meetings and conferences.

Such statements are not always comprehensive, or best worded. It should not always be up to those UNISON members affected by the poor or absent wording to have to request, sometimes fruitlessly, for matters to be put right.

Conference requires the National LGBT Committee to work with all the other UNISON structures to ensure all wording about acceptable behaviour in meetings, courses and conferences is consistent and comprehensive, and that existing documents are revised in line with this.

Conference requires a report back to Conference in 2006 on what has been achieved.
