Union Pride – Celebrating our Past, Building a better future

Join us for a celebration of the role of the trade union movement in the struggle for LGBT+ equality in Ireland and an exploration of how the Irish trade union movement can help achieve marriage equality in Northern Ireland.

To mark Pride Month Congress is hosting a conversation in the appropriate setting of the Books Upstairs café 17 D'Olier Street, Dublin  Wednesday 26 June,  2019 from 6.pm to 7.15pm.

Séamus Dooley, Executive Council member, will lead a panel discussion with veteran campaigner and trade union activist Kieran Rose and Congress Equality Officer in Northern Ireland, Clare Moore. The discussion will focus on the crucial role of the movement in the struggle for equality: from decriminalisation to civil partnership to marriage equality to innovative pioneering initiatives to tackle homophobia and discrimination in the workplace and opportunities and challenges facing trade unions in Northern Ireland as the campaign for marriage equality goes from strength to strength.

The conversation will be illustrated by archive material.
