GMB Race

GMB Race is a self-organised group in London Region. The aim of the group is to ensure that Race is always on the agenda: Organising, recruiting and promoting equality at work and in society for all who identify as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic. We oppose all forms of prejudice and discrimination, acting as a contact and support for all GMB Black Asian and Minority Ethnic members and developing training and events for members. 

Black History Month 

Across our region, workplaces are taking the opportunity to celebrate Black History Month. A time to remember the significant contributions Black Asian and Minority Ethnic workers have made and continue to make in every part of our society.

We must never forget that black history is British history. We should remember, celebrate, and teach our Black History all year round. We should celebrate it at every opportunity. There is so much more to be done to secure racial equality across our country.
