We are committed to equal opportunities and a commitment to increase the participation of black members in the union’s structures and decision making processes. Disseminating information through the database is part of this process.
Information circulated includes notification of key events, training opportunities, seminars, consultations, etc, that have a specific ‘race’ context.
Any details stored on the database are kept confidential and held securely by the PCS equality department. Eligible members can join the database by completing the attached form.
* PCS uses ‘black’ in a political context, to encompass people from African, Asian, Chinese, Arabic, etc, backgrounds. The political black encompasses specific historical and contemporary contexts, which have led to socio economic structural inequalities and discrimination being colour based and/or members sharing a history of slavery and/or colonisation.
