The MU has signed up to the Women's Night Safety Charter that has been put together by the London Night Czar, Amy Lamé, and the London Mayor. The aim is to make London a city where all women feel confident and welcome at night.

Deputy General Secretary Naomi Pohl will be leading the MU’s work in this area and says:

‘We know that lots of our members work at night and in the evenings, and although London is a safe city overall, there are a lot of improvements that could be made. Although this charter is focussed on women, we know that male members also have issues and we will be working with engagers to ensure that all workplaces are safe for those who work antisocial hours. I’m pleased to be part of this initiative and in time I hope that it will be extended to other cities.’
