Many recent reports confirm that racism, a persisting problem across every area of society and achieving diversity at work, is a challenge for all sectors, non-less so in the white-dominated European trade union movement.
The recent unprecedented mobilisation connected to Black Life Matters protest moved the EU institutions to react on the issue and we hope that the European Action Plan Against Racism (2020) will become a vehicle to address structural racism on both EU and national level.
This interactive training session will build on the recent report Trade union practices on non-discrimination and diversity (2019). The study focuses on discrimination based on religion or personal belief, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and multiple discrimination and confirms that the Trade Unions are often at the forefront of the efforts to detect and fight discrimination.
