Union tests law with ethnic minority lists

The GMB union is defying the law by drawing up ethnic
minority shortlists for jobs in the organisation.

It hopes the move will trigger a debate about the legality
of ethnic minority shortlists for selecting parliamentary candidates.

A GMB spokesperson explained that women-only shortlists had
been successful in the increasing the number of women MPs. He said, “The time
has come to break down the barriers to elected office faced by ethnic
minorities.”
