Proportionality and Representation – 2021 Interim Report

Proportionality and Representation – 2021 Interim Report

As part of our ongoing commitment to report annual proportionality data, the Equality, Education and Development department has produced the attached interim report for branches attention.

The report includes data gathered on the 3rd November 2021 and sets out the make- up of our activist base, specifically looking at sex, ethnic background, age, part time workers and representatives who hold multiple roles in the union.

The data that has been used is based on what was contained in the membership database which relies on information provided by members, branches and HQ departments, as such it is the most precise data available but cannot claim to be one hundred per cent accurate or complete.

Moving forward we aim to work more closely with our Equality leads and wider union structures to help us improve the quality of our membership diversity data. This in turn will help us better understand what we look like as a union and provide us with the intelligence we need to target our proportionality and equality organising and campaigning efforts.

The next full data report will be produced in early 2022, prior to CWU Annual Conference. This report will contain all CWU officer and representative positions.

Any queries on this LTB should be directed to equality&

Yours sincerely,

Kate Hudson 
Head of Equality, Education & Development
