Emails and Male Mails at Work

Back to all Motions

Conference
2006 National Women's Conference
Date
3 October 2005
Decision
Carried

Conference is concerned that within many workplaces emails are generated that are sexist in nature and minimise the efforts of women as equals at work.

Conference notes that views are often expressed through the medium of emails where they would not be expressed in person and are often derogatory or exclusionary of women and would, if expressed in another form, constitute harassment.

Conference requires the National Women’s Committee to collate information across the regions and to develop equality in diction as developed in the South West Region of the TUC across UNISON.
