23 September is the International Day of Sign Languages

UNISON has a Stewards Guide to Representing Deaf (native BSL) Members where you can find out more about the barriers BSL users may face at work and how to support Deaf (native BSL) members.

UNISON has up to 200,000 disabled members.  Some of these members are Deaf people whose native language is British Sign Language (BSL). They face significant barriers at work and we need to make sure that as trade union reps we can understand their concerns and help them to raise these with management. The above guide is designed for stewards, but is accessible to all.

If you would like to speak to the Branch, please get in touch.
