This year’s Equality Audit comes at a time when unions face an unpredictable and challenging climate for bargaining on equality. The economic recovery has been weak and uneven, with many of our members feeling the squeeze of stagnant wages, insecure work and continued inequality. We have seen the impact of employment tribunal fees on access to justice for members facing discrimination at work. And following the referendum vote to leave the European Union, we will all be fighting to protect jobs, investment and rights at work and tackle racism in all its forms.

Despite all of this, unions continue to make progress in bargaining for equality. Whether it is equal pay, flexible working, pensions or bullying and harassment, this report is full of examples of smart and effective bargaining for positive changes. And at the workplace level, reps are working day in and day out to tackle issues including disability and mental health, performance management inequality and work/life balance.

The audit provides a rich resource of examples of the approaches unions have taken and the successes they have been able to achieve.
