Use of Disciplinary Procedure Against Black Staff

Back to all Motions

2007 National Black Members' Conference
24 September 2006

This Conference notes that there is a disproportionate amount of black members who are subject to disciplinary procedures within the work place. This leads us to the question whether disciplinary procedures are being applied fairly and equally to all staff. A consequence of this is that the morale of black staff is negatively affected – possibly accounting for the low retention rates of black staff.

We are asking the National Black Members’ Committee to work with National Executive Council to draw up a strategy for entering into discussion with employers on monitoring ethnicity of staff subject to disciplinary procedures.
