Our guidance on race equality at work

Last updated: 04 Mar 2020

Our negotiators and representatives are encouraged to address equality in their workplace bargaining agendas. As well as ensuring equality in pay, conditions, recruitment, selection, promotion, training and development, we seek to:

  • negotiate agreements that allow workers to take their leave around their own cultural or religious holidays, or extended leave to visit family abroad
  • negotiate the introduction of positive action programmes
  • ensure that equivalent foreign qualifications are accepted where appropriate
  • ensure that particular dietary requirements are taken into account, both in workplace restaurants and also when catering for meetings or training events.

As part of our commitment to tackling racism, Prospect is affiliated to Unite Against Fascism, a national campaigning organisation dedicated to tackling fascism and racism.

Bectu is also affiliated to Show Racism the Red Card, a campaigning organisation that uses the high profile of football and footballers to fight racism.

Bectu also supports the work of Searchlight and the Hope Not Hate campaigns.
