Show Racism the Red Card teams up with TUC

Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) and unionlearn (the TUC’s learning and skills organisation) yesterday joined forces to combat racism through education. The agreement recognises the particular roles of each organisation in using education and training to end racism in UK society. SRTRC will mainly work in schools and colleges, while unionlearn will use its network of 30,000 learning reps in workplaces across the UK.

SRTRC Chief Executive Ged Grebby said that the campaign ‘was established in 1995 with the help of the public sector trade union UNISON. Since then we have made great strides in combating racism through anti-racism education, but we still have a long way to go. We see the trade union movement as central to the focus of combating racism through education and welcome the new MoU with the TUC and unionlearn’ http://www.srtrc.org/news/news-and-events?news=4707
