The FDA rules ensure that the union is committed to the promotion of equality for all and actively opposes all forms of harassment, prejudice and unfair discrimination.
But what is the union doing to promote equality and diversity?
The FDA has:
- Strengthened our Equality and Diversity Committee (EDC)
The Equality and Diversity Committee co-ordinates the work of the union on matters of equality. The FDA has a national officer with responsibility for equalities issues, who supports and co-ordinates this committee, as well as FDA Networks for women members, black and minority ethnic members, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members and disabled members.
- Appointed an equality champion (currently John McCullagh) who sits on the FDA's Executive Committee
The FDA has a member on both the TUC lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender committee and the TUC race relations committee, and frequently comments on equality issues in the public sector.
Caroline Milton, FDA national officer for equality and diversity, meets regularly with the Cabinet Office, to consider equality issues across the civil service.
