A National Equality Committee oversees Union campaigns and activities on discrimination issues. This Committee assists the work of a National Equality Network. Within the Network equality Champions (members) and Equality Advocates (full time Organisers) undertake specific equality projects involving and supporting Union members.
The Union offers a range of education and training courses for members dealing with various aspects of equality – including gender issues, the rights of workers with disabilities and combatting racism.
SIPTU is committed to equality in principle and in practice – both in law, in the workplace and in wider society.
