Do you want to help make Network Rail a fairer place to work?

28 March 2013

TSSA are introducing a new kind of union rep within Network Rail. Working to make the company an open and fair employer that is consistent, transparent and rewards those who do a good job. Not simply those whose “face fits”.

Are you:

  • Interested in working on issues such as equal pay, flexible working, fair recruitment & promotion and tackling discrimination?
  • Keen to see the company encourage and recognise the contribution of people from every background, regardless of gender, race, disability, age, sexuality or class?
  • Concerned by the culture perpetrated by some sections of Network Rail against those they perceive as different?
  • Passionate about openness, fairness, equality and diversity?

Then you could be an Equality Rep!

Network Rail are supporting this initiative as they want the company to become a fairer and more inclusive place to work. Release will be provided from your job to carry out training for the role and for the duties of a Trade Union Equality Rep.  

What will Equality Reps do?

Equality Reps will:

  • Help monitor the impact of a fairer approach from the company and highlight inconsistencies where they exist.
  • Be trained in best practice in diversity & inclusion and equalities law.
  • Support and represent TSSA members on issues which have equality aspects.
  • Provide advice for other reps dealing with issues which have equality aspects.
  • Organising, communicating and networking with members from groups under-represented in NR.

Full training will be provided

A specialised training course will be provided that will give you the skills and knowledge to carry out the role as well as bringing you together with other Equality Reps.
