Trade Unions and the Deaf Community – 25th January 2012

Trade Unions and the Deaf Community
A Presentation by Penny Beschizza

Penny entered her teaching career in her mid-30s after voluntary work with young Deaf people and starting a family. She will describe the British Trade Union Movement, with references to Deaf people as Trade Unionists in the last 30 years.
Penny will also discuss the Equality, and Disability conferences held at the Trade Union Congress.

There will be a Q & A session.

Penny would like Deaf professionals to share concerns and queries which she will pass on to the TUC. There is no clear distinction for Deaf people as a linguistic minority within the union, so this evening is an opportunity to start a dialogue with the TUC, with the hope of gaining recognition for Deaf professionals in the future.
