About UNISON South East's Black Members' Committee
Black members in UNISON work to improve equality in the workplace and challenge racism and discrimination. Black members have many of the same concerns as other members regarding access to employment, pay, promotion and training. However, race discrimination can deepen the impact of problems faced in the workplace.
UNISON South East’s Black members' committee (known as a self-organised group) campaigns for equality in the workplace and the wider community. UNISON South East is committed to increasing its representation and participation of Black people within the union.
It is important that there is a visible and vocal presence of the Black members' experience. Black members' self-organised groups (SOGs) work in partnership with other parts of the union to identify and promote our race equality agenda.
UNISON Definition of Black
Black members: in UNISON 'Black' is used to indicate people with a shared history. Black with a capital 'B' is used in its broad political and inclusive sense to describe people in Britain that have suffered colonialism and enslavement in the past and continue to experience racism and diminished opportunities in today's society.
