Mass Parliamentary support for Disability Employment Charter

Mass Parliamentary support for Disability Employment Charter

A large number of MPs have attended an event organised by UNISON in Parliament to demonstrate their support for the Disability Employment Charter, which outlines nine sets of key policy proposals the government needs to implement to address disability employment disadvantage. Disability@Work are founder members of the Charter, and many of its proposals are underpinned by Disability@Work research.

Shadow Disability Minister Vicky Foxcroft MP gave a speech in which she called on the government to implement all of the Charter’s proposals with immediate effect. Attendees included: Angela Rayner MP, John McDonnell MP, Rebecca Long Bailey MP, James Murray MP, Dr Lisa Cameron MP, Barry Gardiner MP, Dawn Butler MP, Rupa Huq MP, Wes Streeting MP, Christina Rees MP, and others.
