Union Resources

At 2011 Honolulu LGBT union negotiation workshop
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) workers have concerns that every union should be prepared to address.  Pride At Work Hawai‘i has presented workshops on LGBTIQ labor issues to members, staff and officers from ten local unions in Hawai'i.  Feel free to let us know how we can meet the needs of your board, negotiating committee, staff, members and/or stewards, in addressing the needs of your LGBTIQ members and staff. 

Training topics and materials include:

  • Understanding terminology
  • Concrete steps to making contracts more LGBTIQ-inclusive contracts
  • How to be a straight “ally” of LGBTIQ workers
  • Ways your union can support LGBTIQ workers
  • Facts on LGBTIQ discrimination
  • Why unions matter to LGBTIQ Workers

To find out more, or set up a training for your union, contact us at (808) 626-9728 or prideatworkhi@gmail.com.
