GLAM is a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members campaigning on equality, gender and human rights issues.
In particular, GLAM’s focus is centred on discrimination, harassment/workplace bullying and equality in superannuation benefits improving the rights at work of LGBT workers.
GLAM was formed nationally by a resolution of the ASU National Conference in 1998, being the first Australian union to establish a forum for the encouragement of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender member involvement in the life of the union. Since then GLAM networks have been established in every ASU branch, and our presence has been felt across the country (and even the world!).
GLAM’s establishment within the broader labour movement has also provided a useful resource for the LGBT community. GLAM has worked with many community organisations over the years, lobbying, assisting on the ground and advertising educative and progressive community events.
