OVER one thousand trade unionists and workplace activists took part in an online conference, organised by the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Stand Up To Racism (SUTR), calling for anti-racist workplaces.
Saturday’s event, “From Covid19 to #BlackLivesMatter — Fighting for Anti-Racist Workplaces,” was part of the build up to the international day of protest to mark UN anti-racism day on March 20.
Speakers included union representatives from Unison, PCS, TUC, NEU, CWU, RMT and BFAWU, activists from All Black Lives UK and international speakers from the US and Greece.
It followed a TUC report highlighting the institutional racism that has led to black, Asian and minority ethnic front-line workers and communities being disproportionately hit by the Covid-19 crisis.
SUTR co-convenor Weyman Bennet said: “The international day of action on March 20, supported by the TUC, gives us all the chance to build a positive show of anti-racist unity.”
He urged members of the public to get involved.
