Equality underpins all of the activities of PCS. By promoting Equality we can better organise the workplace to be fairer, more equitable and maximise the involvement of under-represented groups in to the mainstream activities of our Union.
PCS Equality Reps play a key role in focussing on continuous Equality improvement. As well as raising the awareness of members to the need for a fair and fully inclusive workplace.
PCS Equality Reps will emphasise the need to follow a strictly zero-tolerance approach to Bullying & Harassment and to actively engage Branches in challenging unfair discriminatory practices, procedures or negative cultural influences that may exist in any workplace.
There are six main legislative strands to primary Equality issues. Specific PCS Equality guidance and “Toolkits” already exist for the majority of these strands.
