UNIONS have welcomed a Welsh government action plan and called for better protections for LGBTQ+ people in the workplace.
Wales TUC general secretary Shavannah Taj was commenting on the UN’s independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity Victor Madrigal-Borloz’s praise for the work of the Welsh government in addressing LGBTQ+ human rights.
Ms Taj said: ”Currently in Wales LGBTQ+ people are more likely to face hatred in the forms of transphobia, homophobia, biphobia or other forms of hatred and discrimination.
“We welcome the new action plan and hope that it will act as a framework to help union reps and employers work in social partnership to ensure LGBTQ+ workers feel safe and protected at work.”
Deputy Minister for Social Partnership Hannah Blythyn said the UN’s praise for the Welsh action plan and ambition to become the most friendly LGBTQ+ nation in Europe was humbling.
“But I very much recognise there remains work to be done and that Pride events still have an important part to play across our nation.”
