Publicity for Black Members’ Conference

Back to all Motions

2002 National Black Members' Conference
6 June 2002
Carried as Amended

Conference notes that this is the tenth Conference that the National Black Members’ Committee has held but there has never been any occasion where the mass media – press, local and national newspapers and television – have given publicity to the National Black Members’ Conference, especially on the first day of Conference by interviewing key members of the Committee or focussing on the cause of black people, or the issues that are faced by black people.

Conference therefore requests that the NBMC work with UNISON’s Press and Publicity Department in developing a strategy to attract the mass media including the black and minority press to report positively on the National Black Members’ Conference.
