On Monday 10th September 2018, Show Racism the Red Card are holding a fringe meeting at the TUC Congress. The meeting will take place in the Stanley Suite of the Midland Hotel and it will run from 12:30 - 13:30. The guest speakers include Liz Snape (Assistant General Secretary, UNISON), Kevin Courtney (General Secretary, NEU), Roger McKenzie (Assistant General Secretary, UNISON), Viv Anderson MBE (Former England International), Trevor Sinclair (Former England International), Bryan Robson OBE (Former England International), Gordon Taylor OBE (CEO, PFA), Frank Sinclair (Former Jamaica International) and Taranjit Chana (Equality and London Region, GMB).
This is the TUC's 150th year, and celebrations of this anniversary will form an important part of the TUC Congress in Manchester, 9-12 September. Congress is where the movement decides its priorities for the coming year, and what the TUC should do to achieve them. Each union sends delegates and raises issues for discussion and debate.
Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive, Ged Grebby, said;
"Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) have a Premier League line-up for our Trade Union Congress meeting in Manchester. In addition to Manchester United Legend's Bryan Robson and Viv Anderson we also have former Man City player Trevor Sinclair and former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair attending. The Trade Union movement have been magnificent supporters of SRtRC over the last 22 years and are helping us step up our efforts to challenge racism in the workplace throughout the UK".
