North West Black Members Committee

The Committee aims to represent the views of Black Members within North West UNISON. We promote and encourage training for a Black Members within the Region.

We also wish to ensure that the Region challenges institutional racism wherever it exits.

Black Workers have been disproportionately affected by austerity suffering attacks on their jobs, pay and terms and conditions.

We are also witnessing the growth of the far right across the world as well as the UK. We are committed to being at the forefront of the anti-racist movement for equality and justice.

We need to be strong to resist these attacks. So, get involved!

Remembering Srebrenica

Presentation from Director, Amil Khan.

Remembering Srebrenica is a British charitable initiative. It recognises that we have achieved a lot in terms of building a cohesive society here in the UK, but discrimination, promotion of hatred, extremism, and exclusion persist, and we must play our part, no matter how large or small, to create a better and safer society for all.
