PUBLISHED BY: ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation)
WHO IS THIS FOR: For decades, Global Unions have campaigned for LGBTI workers’ rights. However, LGBTI people still face widespread discrimination in the workplace because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics: from income disparity to workplace harassment, from unfair treatment at work to discrimination when applying for a job. This brochure outlines some of the excellent campaigning trade unions have done throughout the world on LGBTI rights. It provides practical examples of what has worked for them. It is a useful resource for trade union leaders and members, study groups, workers educators and community activists.
