Anti-Racism

manyculturesUNISON is at the forefront of campaigning against racism in Scotland. UNISON members care for the whole community – we won’t allow racists to wreck Scotland’s economic and cultural future.

We have adopted three key objectives: – Tackling racism in the workforce/effective implementation of the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 – Promoting respect for asylum seekers and humane immigration rules – Combating the far right and promoting community cohesion

We have a comprehensive action plan to address these objectives. Actions to improve member and community awareness, negotiating meaningful race equality schemes with employers and challenging the BNP.
