The Scottish Black Members Committee’s Objectives

Conference 2016
Black Delegates gathering at National Delegate Conference

SBMC actively shares promotion of trade union activities within UNISON. We have two main objectives:

  • To raise a positive profile of the committee within UNISON.
  • To increase participation of black members in UNISON’s work, in Scotland.

SBMC implements the above two objectives via ongoing activity. All those who contribute to the implementation process are volunteers, who allocate a considerable amount of time and energies to tackle issues affecting black members in Scotland.

Like any organisation SBMC thrives on support and fresh ideas of its members. To know more about what we do? Why not join us now to support our cause. SBMC needs you, if you have some thing to say. SBMC always welcomes a new comer, keen activists, and those who can make SBMC go from strength to strength.
