GUCU is in the process of developing our strategy for equality at work and we will be rolling out new initiatives in the coming year. We are committed to fighting all forms of discrimination at work and ensuring that our work place is free from racism, sexism, sexual harassment, disablism, discrimination related to gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity and religion. We are committed to combatting inequalities in pay, progression, and attainment, promoting awareness of intersectional aspects of inequality and discrimination, and ensuring that our institution has robust policies of equality and inclusion.
The UCU website has useful links to knowing your rights and union policies and procedures for tackling inequality which can be accessed here: https://www.ucu.org.uk/equality
We currently have two Equalities Representatives who you can contact for any issues or concerns you would like to raise:
Milly Williamson (Department of Media Communications and Cultural Studies)
Roger Kibble (Computing)
