CEO and Execs at Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board signing the UNISON CYMRU/Wales anti-racism charter

Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board has signed up to the UNISON Cymru/Wales anti-racism charter.

UNISON Cymru/Wales convenor Jan Tomlinson said: “Betsi Cadwaladr is the first public service employer to sign up to our anti-racism charter.

“This was a very proud day for the UNISON North Wales Health branch and an important charter for our employer to sign up to.”

The news follows the launch of the UNISON’s Year of Black Workers 2023 campaign at the union’s Cardiff offices earlier this year at an event attended by guests including Welsh Government Economy Minister Vaughan Gething (pictured below signing the UNISON anti-racism charter).

UNISON Cymru/Wales, which represents tens of thousands of public sector workers, is looking to create a lasting legacy to generate change by highlighting barriers of racism Black workers face while focusing on measures to dismantle discrimination and race inequality.
