BAME workers

We believe racism is a trade union issue. It affects people inside and outside the workplace – whether that be with discrimination, access to decent jobs, equal pay or the disproportionate deaths that BAME communities have suffered due to Coronavirus.

Equality is at the core of our mission to create a better working world. We must all work together to eradicate racism and discrimination from our society.

At Community, we also recognise that the trade union movement has not always been as inclusive as it could and should have been. We are determined to set an example, practicing what we preach and fighting to make our movement fully inclusive.

We’re a partner of the Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation. Check out this video we filmed with Baroness Lawrence about tackling racism at work and the work of the Foundation:
