EQUALITY SHOULD BE SECOND NATURE – NOT SECOND BEST
Equality for All
One of the key objectives of Mandate Trade Union is to promote and secure equality of opportunity and treatment for all working in the retail and bar sectors. Mandate Trade Union is committed to advancing the equality agenda, wherever and whenever possible, both on a collective basis for large groups of members and on an individual basis for members suffering personal discrimination.
We are fully committed to valuing diversity and we strive to promote equality of opportunity throughout Mandate Trade Union. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful discrimination and we aim to create an ethos whereby employees and members can participate in the union to their full potential and have their contributions recognised.
Together with two other trade unions (CWU and IBOA), Mandate Trade Union participated in an Equality Mainstreaming Project which has resulted in the development of a Toolkit for Trade Unions. This project was supported by the Equality Mainstreaming Unit which is jointly funded by the European Social Fund 2007 – 2013. The Equality Toolkit consists of:
- Training Manual on Equality, including tutor’s manual – 3 modules
- Model Equality Policy for Trade Unions
- Equality Handbook for Representatives
- Brief equality presentations for inclusion on shop stewards training courses
- Pre-course and post-course questionnaires
