Good news from a fellow blogger

A hat tip to a fellow blogger (http://www.lawatwork.blogspot.com/) whose long term recollection may be doubtful but who was able to share with me the news that Margaret Greer has been re-elected as Chair of UNISON's Regional Black Members' Committee.



As we have demonstrated through detailed work in Lambeth (http://www.voice-online.co.uk/content.php?show=17917), black workers can all too easily be disproportionately targeted at a time of cuts.



Lay-led self-organisation by black workers (as by members of all our self-organised groups) has a vital role to play in ensuring that our commitment to equality is to the fore as we resist the cuts. Black members in UNISON's Greater London Region reaffirmed this today.
