Adding value to disability equalities

Back to all Motions

2009 National Disabled Members' Conference
1 July 2009
Carried as Amended

There are a number of schemes in place which many Employers sign up to that would, if followed, be of great advantage to disabled workers. For these schemes to work effectively, it is essential that disabled workers must be allowed to self nominate and work in partnership with the Employers and scheme organisers to ensure the success of these schemes.

Conference therefore calls upon the National Disabled Members’ Committee to produce guidance which enables branches to liaise with the authors of such schemes with a view to them ensuring the benefits of their scheme are maximised by the full and proper involvement of disabled people in the local implementation of the scheme and its maintenance thereon.
