The Multiplex University of Glasgow Campus Development is the first site in the UK to sign up to Unite’s period dignity campaign. This is in efforts to improve the facilities for female workers following an industry survey of welfare facilities in the industry.
Caron Dunlop, Head of Community Engagement said:
“Multiplex is committed to providing great workplaces and spaces for everyone that comes to our sites. We have single-handedly developed a new standard for temporary construction offices and are planning to certify all of our offices by the end of the year. Supporting the Period Dignity campaign as part of our community engagement work is a natural extension to what we currently provide and we are delighted to support this campaign at our University of Glasgow Development Project.”
While Gail Cartmail, Unite Assistant General Secretary said:
“Unite is asking construction employers to sign up to four basic demands which will ensure that women workers can experience period dignity. With an ever growing skills shortage in our industry, it is absolutely essential that construction becomes more attractive to women workers. A small step in achieving this is to ensure that women construction workers can have period dignity at work. Unite welcomes Multiplex’s role as a trailblazer in signing up to the campaign and will continue to highlight other sites and companies which also sign up in the future.”
