Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people continue to face significant barriers at work. They are more likely to be unemployed than white people and less likely to be employed in good, permanent jobs, and they are often also subject to racist abuse and harassment.
The massive drop in claims due to the introduction of tribunal fees and a rise in hate crimes makes it more important than ever for union reps to take up race equality issues in the workplace. Written from a trade union perspective, this booklet sets out important legal developments in this area. It also explains how to negotiate agreements to reduce inequality and promote diversity, together with practical examples of how unions are combatting racial harassment, bullying and abuse.
The popular LRD Booklets provide invaluable information on a range of trade union and labour movement concerns. An average of 10 or 11 booklets are produced each year. There are guides to issues that are permanently on the trade union agenda - such as health and safety, state benefits and sick pay - as well as rapid analysis of new developments affecting trade unionists - such as new employment laws and codes.
