Women Members

Welcome to the Women Members’ page. This page will be a dedicated area for Women Members and will provide an opportunity to gain information and raise issues associated with women in the workplace through articles and signposting.

There are many issues affecting women in the workplace such as pregnancy and maternity rights; childcare; working hours and flexible working if you are a carer for children, grandchildren, a partner or parents; sexual harassment; domestic abuse; menopause issues and dress codes. Working together on these issues we hope to make our workplaces a better place.

Presently we have a campaign focus around Sexual Harassment in the Workplace and are surveying those working in Southend Borough Council and South Essex Homes – if you have not taken part please let us know.

Please get in contact if you would like to get involved with the branch on these issues from writing articles to helping out with the survey to meeting up as a UNISON Women’s Group – this will all help to further our aims of making the workplace a fairer place.

We look forward to hearing from you!
