Help with the TUC survey

Are you LGBT+? Are you currently working or have worked in the last 5 years? The TUC would like to hear from you.

They are launching a UK wide survey for all LGBT+ workers, whether you are in a trade union or not. They want to understand your experiences of work – good and bad. They want to use these findings to create resources for trade union reps, training material and share the experiences and issues impacting LGBT+ workers. Have your say today.
