Global Unions launch LGTBI workers site

It’s International Coming Out Day! In celebration, the Council of Global Unions, including the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) is releasing our LGBTI website to share the work of Global Unions promoting LGBTI rights at work at national, regional and international levels. This website is also a place for our affiliated unions to share the work they are doing in promoting LGBTI rights at work across the world.

Ultimately, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Tell us your great LGBTI trade union campaigning stories and we’ll share it on our website so we can learn from each other. It features a dedicated forum for workers to share their stories, or you can get in touch via our contact page.

Together, we can create more inclusive workplaces and build a more tolerant and discrimination-free world.

IFJ General Secretary, Anthony Bellanger, said: The launching of the LGTBI workers site is great news for us. Today, we reaffirm our commitment to inclusive and non-discriminatory newsrooms. Every media worker is entitled to work free from discrimination and violence regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex characteristics".
