Equalities

Our Work

QMUCU Equalities is a dedicated team of reps and officers working together on workplace policy and practice that has an equality dimension. As such, our work is wide-ranging and comprehensive, especially as we attempt to tackle workplace issues through an intersectional lens.

The UK’s Equality Act (2010) identifies 9 ‘protected characteristics’ (age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, and pregnancy and maternity) that must be protected against workplace discrimination. We campaign for management to comply with the law and to go beyond it and work towards progressive policies and procedures.

Our core mode of delivery is to work with our members to ensure minorities and protected workers have a voice and visibility in all QMUCU activities and campaigns.

The Equalities Team

QMUCU currently have a Disability Rep and a LGBT+ Rep and have established an anti-racism working group to help us fight racism at QMUL. The post of Equalities Rep, Women’s Rep and Black Members Rep are currently vacant.
