UNISON’s NEC agreed to affiliate to Stand Up To Racism in January 2017; the 2017 National Delegate Conference agreed a motion supporting affiliation and agreeing to work with Stand Up To Racism to challenge racism in the workplace and beyond. It agreed UNISON would continue to fight the increase in racial hatred since the EU referendum vote in 2016 and challenge all forms of discrimination as core aspects of UNISON’s work for 2017 and beyond and publicise these initiatives, and those of our affiliated partners, to members.
