Combating discrimination: Rights for LGBTQI* workers

Trade Unions have a significant role to play in promoting equality in work places. The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) has in fact embraced LGBTQI equality in its manifesto and work programme

In this framework, the ETUI Education department organised together with ETUC a training on LGBTQI workers’ rights on 21- 23 February 2017 in Brussels. Participants from 20 European trade union national confederations took active part in the training, seeking to learn more about the European political context for LGBQI rights and share experiences in protecting LGBTQI workers. Through experts’ presentations and group activities, participants contributed to designing common trade union strategies to combat LGBTQI discriminations with a focus on collective bargaining.* LGBTQI- Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex
