Equality Rep Network

We are currently working on further developing our National Equality Rep Network. The network aims to allow reps who work around equalities to communicate with one another to share good practice, offer guidance, receive support, and increase knowledge and contacts. At present, we are speaking with union equalities officers and reps, as well as union branches who are working around equalities about what issues they are facing and what direction they would like to see a future network move in. If you have any suggestions around this, or would like to get involved, please email emclaren@stuc.org.uk.

For now, you can follow our twitter for updates.


This section includes important resources on key topics reps identified as needing greater support on. This section is being updated regularly. While some of these resources are framed in a Trade Union context, others are from independent organisations, which should be considered when gathering information to relay to members. Please get in touch if you require information on a specific equalities topic. To find out more about our resources, click here.


Scottish Union Learning will be organising podcasts on issues around equality. For more information on our podcasts, click here.


Scottish Union Learning will be issuing an equalities newsletter, quarterly, aimed at disseminating the latest updates on Trade Union equalities work. If you would like to contribute to the newsletter, or to find out more information, please contact emclaren@stuc.org.uk.
