If you’re a Southend UNISON member and would like to attend the STAND UP TO RACISM Trade Union Conference on Saturday 23 February please contact the branch ASAP for financial support. We will be covering conference registration, travel expenses and subsistence for 10 delegates on a first-come, first-served basis. In exchange, we would want your feedback and support on how we can best organise around issues raised at the conference and how we can be proactive in stopping the far right and challenging racism in our workplaces and community during 2019.
The STAND UP TO RACISM Trade Union Conference is an opportunity for trade unionists to discuss, debate and organise and will focus on challenging institutional racism and mobilising for the UN Anti-Racism Day Demonstration* on Saturday 16th March. A full conference programme of speakers, plenaries and workshops will be announced soon.
* More information about the UN Anti-Racism Day Demonstration coming soon.
