- 2010 National Black Members' Conference
- 7 August 2009
This conference notes that the RMS system still does not record data on the ethnic origins of all our members.
Information is collected on members joining branches, however a member could change job in their workplace and never complete a membership update form. In order to have accurate records on the ethnic origins of all UNISON members, so that we can identify Black members, there needs to be a campaign to encourage all members to update their details. This will then enable a better organisation of Black members in UNISON.
This conference calls upon the National Black Members’ Committee to:
1.Work with the National Executive Council (NEC) to ensure that RMS data is updated regularly;
2.Encourage members to update their membership record either on line or via branches;
3.Work with NEC to publish annual progress report;
4.To communicate to branches the importance of keeping up to date records through the RMS.
