Following on the STUC Woman’s Conference 2012, the STUC would like to highlight the trade union sponsored campaign on maternity rights.
Maternity Action is collecting evidence from women workers, regarding their experience before and after maternity leave.
We are encouraging our members to get involved with this campaign and offer any experiences here http://valuingmaternity.org/tell-your-story/
Unions are working with Maternity Action to identify specific Scottish evidence and areas of policy, which could be discussed further with the Scottish Government, following on the Women’s Employment Summit in September 2012.
In addition, recent STUC submissions to UK Government consultations have challenged the Government’s intentions to restrict maternity rights.
