Over the next 12 months we want to develop and deliver member-led education about important health and safety matters that will allow us to embed them into our day to day organising work.
We will develop support structures and escalation ladders for members who are interested in making their workplaces safer.
The FSU Human Rights Network will be an active, informed group of FSU members with the skills and confidence to campaign on the human rights issues that matter most to our members.
Our initial focus will be on identifying and developing members of our Human Rights Network to empower them to lead our work in this space.
We will build alliances with organisations with shared visions (UniGlobal, Inclusive Development International, Australian Centre for Corporate Responsibility) to amplify our impact.
We will undertake a detailed assessment of the human rights compliance of the major employers in our sector to determine how we can best improve the human rights across the finance sector for all.
In the next 12 months explore new ways to network and engage with finance workers about the importance of diversity and inclusion within workplaces and the power of being Union.
Leveraging Enterprise Agreement negotiations to secure new industrial rights that reflect the diversity of workers within the industry, including securing Gender Affirmation Leave all at the major banks.
In the next 12 months FSU will have a nationally consistent approach to our women’s agenda and will formulate a committee made up of leaders from each state and territory who will work with FSU staff to ensure that we participate in events runs by local TLCs.
The FSU will publish some simple resources available to members on our website to provide some basic education on the key issues as well as our track record of successful campaigns. The focus for IWD 2022 will be on pay transparency and the FSU will continue to hold employers accountable for their continued use of pay confidentiality clauses.
Over the next 12 months we want to bring about consistency and uniformity and work towards developing policy positions that we can pursue at the state and national conference platforms. We will encourage more women to participate and be represented.
We will look at training opportunities for members and workplace leaders to get more involved in this space.
