Local Scottish Labour MSP has supported the Scottish Trade Union Congress (STUC) Black Workers Committee’s campaign to ‘Break the Race Ceiling’.
The campaign, which was launched at the STUC’s Black Lives Matter, We Can’t Breathe online rally, seeks to challenge the systemic racism and prejudice in the world of work.
This campaign will challenge not only recruitment practices, but also issues around the progression of BAME workers and will seek to implement ways to ensure that they have the opportunity to develop their careers without barriers in the workplace.
Labour MSP, Neil Findlay MSP said:
“The STUC’s Black Workers Committee has my full support for the ‘Break the Race Ceiling’ campaign.
“Racism, prejudice and discrimination have no place in our society. The appalling murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis should make everyone think about how we tackle the scourge of racial discrimination. This campaign will challenge Government and employers to remove all barriers the advancement for our BAME colleagues.”
