Positive Action is needed to overcome direct & indirect discrimination against women taking up leadership positions in trade unions Establishing a standing committee to promote gender equality and recruitment. Reflecting the increased attention to gender and women in the field of employment relations, there is now a growing international literature on women and trade unions. The interest in women as trade unionists arises partly from the fact that women comprise 40 percent of trade union membership in the USA and over 50 percent in the UK.

    Examining the experiences of leadership among trade unionists in a range of unions and labor movements around the world, this volume addresses perspectives of women and men from a range of identities such as race/ethnicity, sexuality, and age. It analyses existing models of leadership in various political organizational forms, especially trade unions, but also including business and management. • Include gender quota and women’s issues in all the programmes/ events (e.g. training on organising etc.) of every ITUC affiliate The participants in the School decided to organize the PERC young women network which will gather all young women willing to contribute .
