The biennial TUC equality audits came out of an important TUC rule change in 2001, which committed the TUC and unions to promote equality in all aspects of our work. The first audit was carried out in 2003 and provided a yardstick of equality issues in all union activities. Since then the audits have alternated between focusing on how unions pursue equality issues through collective bargaining and on how union membership, rules and internal structures reflect the diversity of the workforce.
The 2014 survey of union structures, policies and services relating to equality, featuring a response rate covering 95 per cent of the TUC’s 5.6 million British trade union members.
The results, which can be compared with those from the 2012 audit, provide important reading for all member unions.
The next TUC Equality Audit will be carried out in 2016. It will focus on trade unions' efforts to further equality in the workplace through collective bargaining.
