PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka joins the line-up of labour movement and anti-racism speakers at the international on-line conference on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October. PCS vice-president Zita Holbourne is also a guest speaker, alongside TUC race equality officer Wilf Sullivan.
Mohammed Shafiq, chair of the PCS national black members’ committee said: “PCS has always been a strong supporter of Stand up to Racism. Tackling under- representation and taking a robust stance against racism alongside anti-racism organisations is central to the PCS anti-racism, anti-fascism (ARAF) strategy. From supporting national conferences like this one or standing together at protests around the country; our movement is proud to stand together. The conference comes at a crucial period in the global fight to end racism, and will be inspirational to any PCS member wanting to get involved in this struggle.”
