Analyse the role that Trade Unions play in reducing discrimination in the workplace? USING THEORIES AND EVIDENCE.
Traditionally trade unions have acted to protect their members’ interests in the workplace and to further the agenda of a fairer and more equal society. However, criticisms levelled at trade unions have suggested that they have mainly concentrated on white working class men. The workshop will explore these issues and examine the changing role of trade unions in the area of equality and diversity.
