Let's talk about racism at work

15/12/2016

Racism is on the rise. For many Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) workers, racism at work is part of their everyday life.

Today, the TUC, which URTU is an affiliated member, is launching an online survey to expose the everyday reality of racism. Racism at Work is the first survey of its kind in the trade union movement.

Racism at Work can take many forms, from facing racial harassment at a work to being denied access to promotion or training. We are asking non-unionised as well as unionised workers to complete the survey. We are also keen to hear from anyone who has witnessed any form of racial harassment or discrimination.

This is  your chance to share your experience about racism at work by completing the survey.

The TUC will treat the information provided in confidence, and the survey can be completed anonymously. If you have any questions, please contact Wilf Sullivan wsullivan@tuc.org.uk or Natasha Owusu nowusu@tuc.org.uk.
