Our Vision, Where we are Going

Our vision is of an enhanced trade union which is to the betterment of all through the promotion of LGB&T rights in the workplace and in society. We want NIPSA to be at the forefront of all LGB&T related matters, ensuring Employers adopt exceptional and progressive workplace policies and terms & conditions that fully protect our LGB&T NIPSA members.
