Dear Colleague,

TUC MANIFESTO FOR DISABILITY EQUALITY

Please find enclosed a copy of the TUC’s Manifesto for Disability Equality and the accompanying guide for trade union activists.  These documents are now on our website and can also be found on:

https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/Manifestofordisabilityequality.pdf

https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/DisabilityManifestoGuide.pdf

This manifesto has been endorsed by the National Executive Committee and is being circulated to all branches and regional councils so that it may be considered as a tool to fight the discrimination faced by people with disabilities not only at work but in society as a whole.

The manifesto will also be on the first agenda for our Disabled Workers Advisory Committee and Conference whose basis of election will be determined at the next Statutory Meeting of the NEC.

If you have any queries on this matter, please do contact our Equal Opportunities Officer, Jess Webb, j.webb@rmt.org.uk

Yours sincerely,
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
