Union Values and LGBTQ+ Worker Experiences – A Binational Study of UFCW OUTreach in Collaboration with UCLA Labor Centre
Join us for an engaging discussion of Union Values and LGBTQ+ Worker Experiences: A Survey of UFCW Workers in the United States and Canada, a new binational report from the UCLA Labor Center, a unit of the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) OUTreach. The report finds that UFCW LGBTQ+ union members and their allies are leading the way in challenging discriminatory laws and policies and instituting greater protections so that LGBTQ+ workers can thrive at work and in their communities. The report offers a timely analysis of LGBTQ+ worker issues and identity politics in North American labour movements.

In this session, academics and labour and human rights activists will deconstruct the concept of “layered protections” for LGBTQ+ unionized workers employed in frontline sectors.
