- 2004 National Black Members' Conference
- 31 October 2003
Currently members are finding it extremely difficult to attend and be actively involved in UNISON.
Members have been continuously forced to take annual leave or flexi-time off for UNISON activities.
Let us not have a separatist union of Them and Us.
If UNISON is serious about equality then it should follow its own equality policies, to negotiate, to provide self-organised groups facility time to enable self-organised groups to effectively participate in UNISON activities and duties.
Conference instructs the National Black Members’ Committee to actively campaign on this issue and ensure that it is raised as an issue of national importance at all levels within the union.
