This workshop will present two unique studies on trade union solidarity on social justice issues, with a focus on abortion and the issues surrounding it in the workplace. The first study focuses on Ireland and Northern Ireland, whilst the second study has been reproduced by our partners at the University of Warsaw, with an expanded focus on sexuality in the workplace.

Guest speakers include Fiona Bloomer, a lecturer in Social Policy from Ulster University, and Janina Petelczyc, who is a lecture in Social Policy at the University of Warsaw.

Refreshments will be available and there will be a Q&A session at the end.
