About this resource

This essential guide for union reps will help you support colleagues facing discrimination because they are pregnant or have taken maternity leave.

Who is this interactive learning for?

This piece of learning is for union reps who want to know more about pregnancy and maternity discrimination and how to support members with these issues.

How will this help me?

This learning will:

  • present research and evidence showing the scale of the issue
  • outline the law on pregnancy and maternity rights
  • give practical examples for union reps on how they can support colleagues.
How do I complete it?

All you need is an internet-enabled mobile device (a phone or tablet) or a computer. Do as little or as much as you like each time you log on — your progress will always be saved. Next time you log on just pick up where you left off, this one will take you about 15 minutes to complete. 

Will I get anything for doing this?

Upon completion of this piece of learning, you will receive a digital credential as proof. This will be sent to you via email (from the TUC via Acclaim), so please keep a look out for it. 

A digital credential is evidence that you have completed this piece of learning. You can share your credential with your union colleagues or employer to show them what you know.
