UNISON’s Year of the Black Worker

 

Thank you to all the members who stopped by UNISON’s stall at the Town Hall last week to mark Black History Month and UNISON’s Year of the Black Worker. Our black activist’s did a great job of personning the stall and giving out information on UNISON’s equality agenda and our Anti- Racism Charter. UNISON is calling on the council to sign up to UNISON’s Anti Racism charter. For information about the charter:
