A webinar on trade unions’ role in promoting and protecting human rights and equality is taking place online next Thursday, 22nd October from 9:30 to 11am.
‘Promoting and protecting human rights and equality: The potential of the public sector equality and human rights duty for trade unions,’ aims to advance the rights of public sector workers and service users, while enhancing the quality of public policy and services.
It will be jointly hosted by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) and the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU).
Fórsa general secretary and ICTU vice president, Kevin Callinan will open the event alongside IHREC chief commissioner, Sinéad Gibney. UNISON general secretary, David Prentis will make the keynote address, giving practical insights into how UNISON utilises the public sector equality duty in the UK to advance workers’ rights, and improve the quality of services, particularly for vulnerable people.
