Race equality is a key priority in the workplace and beyond. Unite campaigns for fair treatment for all and recognises the responsibility of everyone in the Union to challenge racism in the workplace, the union and our society.
BAEM workers face higher levels of unemployment and racism at work and Unite Race Forward Campaign action plans are targeted at union reps to support them in tackling racism in the workplace.
We must all work together to promote race equality and ensure that BAEM members continue to play a key role in our union and to increase their involvement at every level.
By joining Unite you too can get involved in achieving this aim.
