TUC report finds racism still rife in UK workplaces

Racism
still pervades Britain’s workplaces, according to a new report.

The
TUC report Black Voices at Work, finds that despite progress, hidden racism
continues.

Issued
at the 10th TUC Black Workers’ Conference, the report calls on the Government
to extend race relations laws to require all employers to positively promote
race equality.

The
report wants racial discrimination and the expressing of racist views to be
treated as a serious disciplinary offence.

Brendan
Barber, TUC general secretary-elect, said: "Anti-racist laws and
campaigning have bought real benefits to large numbers of workers. Now the
Government must legislate to force all employers to rid our workplaces of
racism."
