Study finds that Labour Unions are providing necessary layer of protection for LGBTQ workersUCLA Labor Centre UFCW OUTreach LGBTQ+ Worker Experience Study

A UCLA report published October 8, 2020 found that advocacy efforts by rank-and-file members of the United Food and Commercial Workers broadly support union organizing for safer and more equitable workplaces for LGBTQ workers in the U.S. and Canada, but the fight toward ending workplace discrimination is far from over.

The researchers hope that the findings can inform discussions and strengthen union organizing related to equity for LGBTQ workers across industries. The report was a collaboration between the UCLA Labor Center and the UFCW  OUTreach.
