- 2010 Local Government Service Group Conference
- 18 February 2010
It is well known that young people are the future of this organisation and with that in mind we need a targeted advertising campaign to recruit more young Black members into UNISON, working directly with NUS Black Student campaign, UNISON young members and other Black orientated youth organisations.
This conference is also aware that Apprenticeship schemes are limited and would like to encourage young Black workers to have better access to information on apprenticeship schemes.
Conference is concerned about the low numbers of young Black workers that have successfully completed Apprenticeship schemes.
Conference therefore calls on the Local Government Service Group Executive to work with the National Black Members’ Committee, National Young Members’ Forum and other Service Groups to:
1)Ensure that young Black workers employed in the Local Government Sector have full access to information on Apprenticeship schemes.
2)Raise these concerns with employers.
3)Work with NUS Black students to develop a recruitment campaign which consists of:
a)Posters, postcards and multi-platform of media campaign that is accessible to all and which outlines the project;
b)Liaison with national organisations that represent young people to make them aware of the aims and objectives and how to get involved.
