Calling all disabled members of UNISON – I’m new to the role of Disabled Members officer so I’d like to understand more about the issues that you face in the workplace. I plan to send out a survey and ask for your views on what the important topics are that you want to work with me on to help improve the workplace for disabled members.  
 
I’m aware that reasonable adjustments, working from home, sickness absence, sickness policy, consistency of the application of relevant policies across the University, discrimination and accessibility are all potential concerns – but I’d also like to know your thoughts about wider issues such as a disability pay gap and celebrating disability history month and whether we would like to take a proactive approach to these.

Please do have a think about this and look out for the survey that will be sent out by the end of May.
