Usdaw campaigns for equal treatment and the promotion of equal opportunities for everyone

Same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is the only region of the UK which does not provide or recognise same-sex marriage, despite huge support among the public and Northern Ireland Assembly members.
In the absence of functioning devolution, only Parliament can undo the ban on same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. To do this, Conor McGinn MP has introduced a Private Member’s Bill, which is due to have a second reading on Fri 26 October 2018.
Support the campaign by sending an email to Theresa May, Karen Bradley and Penny Mordaunt.

No Room For Racism

Our ‘No Room for Racism’ campaign was developed in response to a growing demand from reps who wanted to run workplace anti-racist campaigns. Let us now take that message back to our workplaces and to our communities.

Zero Tolerance

We are part of an international trade union coalition tackling violence against women and girls. Violence affects women worldwide and action is needed both nationally and internationally to tackle it.
