The Wales TUC has a positive relationship with workplace reps across Wales. Through consultations with these reps, holding Equality network meetings and engaging with the Wales TUC equality committee, we discovered that workplaces were not tackling certain issues in a way that helped workers. One of those issues that was being ignored was that of the menopause. To tackle this issue Wales TUC has launched a joint campaign with the Women’s Equality Network Wales (WEN Wales).
Wales TUC have produced a report outlining the purpose, survey finding and next steps for the project, as well as a toolkit for union reps to provide information, and help reps in recognising and addressing the workplace issues that can worsen women’s symptoms.
