Scottish Trades Union Congress Dyslexia Guide
You might be wondering what are my employees’ rights and how do I support them? The Scottish Trade Union Congress and Scottish Union Learning have developed this guide to help Union Learning Representatives support and signpost people in the workplace who may have dyslexia, and to encourage them to contact relevant organisations that can provide the information and support they need.
Membership of the Scottish Trades Union Dyslexia Group includes representatives from various affiliated unions, Scottish Union Learning, the STUC Disabled Workers’ Committee and Dyslexia Scotland.
