Sheffield Central CLP event: Trade Unions - Male, Pale and Stale?

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:

Jess Meacham - Branch Officer, University College Union

Deanne Ferguson - Regional Organiser, GMB

Liz Hampson - Area Organiser, USDAW

Jill Collins - Project Manager, Women in Science, Engineering and Technology

Harriet Eisner - Regional Officer, Unite. 


10.30am tea and coffee available

11am introductions

11.10am panel discussion - "Does the Trade Union movement have an image problem and how can it be fixed?"

11.40am questions and answers

12pm breakout session to speak to network with trade union representatives and attendees

12.30pm - close
