THE head of one of Britain’s biggest teaching unions is to lead a new TUC taskforce to combat racism.
NASUWT general secretary Dr Patrick Roach will lead the group, which will be launched today at TUC conference.
The launch comes following a rise in activity by far-right and racist organisations in Britain and Europe, including the Britain First movement, which has been invading accommodation housing refugees.
Racist groups have also targeted the port of Dover for demonstrations and been met with opposition by groups including Stand Up to Racism (SUTR).
Dr Roach said: “There is no excuse for systems and practices which hold back talent or put workers at greater risk of illness or injury because of the colour of their skin.
“The anti-racism task force will be unapologetic in calling out racial injustice and institutional racism wherever it exists.”
