    LGBTIQ Worker's Rights Consultation Session

    pride.jpg

    Together with community organisations and LGBTIQ+ activists, the union movement achieved something massive.

    We won marriage equality for all Australians and showed the Turnbull government that the union movement will always fight for love, fairness and equality for every Australian. 

    But we're not done. There are many more battles ahead for our LGBTIQ+ comrades, and the union movement is going to fight hard alongside our LGBTIQ+ comrades to make sure no worker ever faces discrimination at work, however they identify.

    But to do that, we need your help! 

    We know that many of the challenges the LGBTIQ+ community face are caused by the same problem that women workers face - a patriarchal system and sexism at large. 

    Join us for a special consultation session to help us determine what the challenges are for LGBTIQ+ people at work, how we can best consult with the community about them, and how we can work together to change them, and make sure all workplaces are free from discrimination. 

    There'll be pizza and soft drinks provided - all you need to bring are your ideas and enthusiasm! 

    Accessibility: Trades Hall is an old building but we will do all we can to make the event accessible for people with disabilities. Many of the rooms are wheelchair accessible. If given enough notice we will make adjustments as best we can for other access requirements.

    Equal Opportunity Commission in Carlton, Australia

    Day at The Commission Part One: What is VEOHRC and How Are They Fighting Gendered Violence at Work?





    Our Day at the Commission is an absolute must for every working woman who has wondered what the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission can actually do to help with gendered violence at work.

    Join the Chief Executive of the Victorian Equal Opportunity Commission Catherine Dixon for a panel discussion on the VEOHRC’s powers and purpose and a catered lunch. This is the perfect opportunity to meet Catherine, who is working hard to fight gendered violence at work in Victoria - and to ask herabout how she sees the fight for stopping gendered violence moving away from a complaints-based model.

    This is a great event for Stop Gendered Violence at Work activists, union members and delegates, and working women to learn about how the rules are broken - and how we can better design and use the bodies there to defend us. Best of all, it's absolutely free.

    We think you'll jump at the chance to participate in an exclusive training session to learn about the Equal Opportunity Act and how it can advance women's rights at work, including dealing with workplace gendered violence.

    You'll learn how the Equal Opportunity Act can be a helpful mechanism to address gendered violence at work, and some of the constraints it faces. 

    This is a perfect opportunity for Stop Gendered Violence at Work activists, union members and delegates, and working women to learn about how the rules are broken - and how we can better design and use the bodies there to defend us. Best of all, it's absolutely free.

    CFMEU Delegates Training: Gendered Violence at Work

    The CFMEU know that the rules are broken for working women. Over 60% of Victorian working women experience gendered violence at work, and Worksafe won't recognise it. Employers don't care about it.

    In partnership with our Women's Rights at Work Festival, the CFMEU will be conducting a training session for all CFMEU delegates to give them the skills to recognise, call out and stop gendered violence at work.

    Please note this is a CFMEU-only event. For more information contact Lisa Zanatta at lzanatta@cfmeu.org
