4 July 2014
Carried as Amended

Conference, Disabled workers often have to overcome more barriers to be able to manage daily life and to hold down a job. The Coalition Government has taken away our support mechanisms to be able maintain and manage ‘normal day to day activities’ including employment.

Conference, we instruct that in 2015 the National Disabled Members Committee work plan include, a campaign working with relevant disabled groups via the Trades Union Congress (TUC) to highlight the impact on disabled members and their families who wish to play an active part in society and the workplace and campaign to raise awareness of the disproportionate impact on disabled people by the policies of the coalition government.
