Results Of RMT Survey Of Women Members: Sexism In The Transport Sector

What actions do you think would help get rid of the sexist culture in your work place?

  • Awareness of what is/what is not acceptable.
  • Definitely more awareness training. More women in senior positions.
  • It's mostly the over 50's in the workplace as they are still stuck in the 1960's era!!
  • Have women on the board of directors would be nice!
  • There is a culture that says if you're not one of the "lads" i.e. Drink, swear or object to any discrimination you're attacked.
