What do you think of when someone talks to you about trade unions? Is it of a diverse leadership that represents a variety of workers? Or does male, pale and stale come to mind?
Since 2013, the Trades Union Congress has had Frances O'Grady at its helm - the first ever female appointment to that role.
But has this encouraged more women to engage with trade unions? And what relevance are they to young people, BAME workers, LGBT employees and other groups of identity?
Jason Holyhead, Trade Union Liaison Officer, and Nikki Bond, Women's Officer for Sheffield Central CLP are pleased to invite you to this event on Saturday 9th September, 10.30am - 12.30pm at the Sheffield Quaker Meeting House to discuss the image of trade unions and hear from our female speaker panel:
