The ISU work hard to promote equality of opportunity, inclusion and respect for all members. We stand resolutely against discrimination and unfairness of every description.

Equality is more than simply a set of principles we all share. It is also a continuing campaign to achieve fairness for members who are too often marginalised.

We fight hard for members who :-

  • Experience bullying, harassment and discrimination because of race, sexuality or any other irrelevant characteristic
  • Struggle to adapt to disability at work, too often in the face of managers who do not make reasonable adjustments and instead, penalise people for their disabilities
  • Do not get a fair share in job selection processes, which do not do enough to protect their interests


At the ISU, we are a community and we stand firm for those who most need our support.

Currently our National Equality Lead is Claire Faxon, supported by Stuart Band.
