Who is this interactive guide for?

This guide is for union members and reps who want to learn how to support experiencing difficulties due to menopause in the workplace.

In 2016, a Wales TUC survey of almost 4000 workers found that nearly 9 in 10 workers said that the menopause had affected their working life.

The menopause is often treated negatively or as a joke within the workplace. Very few workplaces have policies in place to support those who experience difficulties during the menopause. This needs to change.

As a union rep, you can make a difference.

How will it help me?

  • learn why menopause is a workplace issue
  • explains what the symptoms are and who is affected
  • guidance on what reps can do and further learning resources
