Branch Equalities Officer, Kathleen Kennedy, is a member of the UNISON Scotland Disabled Members’ Committee, which is a self organised group consisting entirely of disabled members who campaign on behalf of our disabled members to ensure that disability issues are given a voice within UNISON.

From the Scottish Committee Kathleen has now been elected onto the National Disabled Members Committee.

Kathleen said, “The National Disabled Committee has a key role to raise issues surrounding disability across the whole of UNISON. As a member of this committee I am also involved with organising the National Disabled Members Conference.”

Kathleen will attend this conference and will co-chair the Women’s Caucus meeting at the National Disabled Members Committee and National Disabled Members Conference.

Kathleen is also involved in two Disabled Women Members’ Network Days and has been elected as one of the National Disabled Members Delegation going to the TUC Disabled Workers Conference.
