Description

We're All In This Together: Exploring Our Personal & Collective Power Around Mental Health

A joint STUC Equality Committee event.

Following on from the success of last year's event, join the STUC at our free day school, We are all in this together: exploring our personal and collective power around mental health.

Mental health is a trade union issue. With increasing levels of precarious work, stagnating wages and poor conditions, stress and anxiety fuelled by employers is increasing. Outside the workplace, rising rents, food prices and transport are pushing people into precarity. It is not a surprise that millions of people across Scotland suffer from poor mental health every year.

This event will continue a conversation across our movement about how we can best support each other and fight for better, fairer, and healthier lives both inside and outside the workplace.

This year's day school will run from 9.30am - 3.45pm on the 1st of June 2019, and will include:

A panel discussion with representatives from NUJ, Unite, HCSA and ASLEF on how trade unions are dealing with mental ill health in the workplace.

Workshops on:

  • Mental ill health in the gig economy
  • Mental health and an ageing workforce
  • Bullying, harassment and discrimination

You’ll also hear from Glasgow Disability Alliance, Women Against Capitalism and TUC Learning among many more.

At the event we’ll also be discussing the results of a survey concerning how employers and workplaces impact our mental health; you can fill this out here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AllInThisTogether

This is a free event open to all trade unionists, but it is particularly relevant for health & safety, and equalities workplace reps.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

A full programme outline, including details of speakers, will be emailed to you prior to the event.

Please advise if you have any access requirements, including dietary: info@stuc.org.uk / 0141 337 8100
