NAHT members join the TUC Black Workers' Conference in 2024

NAHT was delighted to participate in the second of this year’s TUC equality conferences, TUC Black Workers' Conference, which took place in London from 26 to 28 April 2024. 

Every year, the TUC hosts a series of equality conferences that focus on supporting the advancement of issues that disproportionally impact minority groups. Second in this series was the TUC Black Workers' Conference, with a theme of #HereToStayHereToFight.

NAHT was represented by seven members from across our regions who voted on a range of motions across a plethora of areas put to the conference, all of which disproportionately impact Black workers.

Motion themes put to the conference included:

  • the disproportionate impact the minimum service level agreements proposal has on Black workers
  • calls for the introduction of ethnicity pay gap reporting
  • work to address the disproportionate disciplinary procedures faced by Black and ethnic minority workers
  • work to highlight the cost of living and the impact on Black workers’ pensions
  • calls to challenge hostile narratives and politics around migration and asylum
  • work to tackle health inequalities for Black workers
  • sexual harassment of Black women. 

TUC president Matt Wrack and TUC assistant general secretary Kate Bell addressed the conference, along with Patrick Roach, NASUWT general secretary and chair of the TUC anti-racism task force. Delegates also had the opportunity to join fringe discussions and wider networking sessions.

The conference was another huge success and NAHT's delegates left feeling inspired and energised. Speaking afterwards, NAHT delegate Shamshad Azad said: “The conference was amazing, there was so much to take away. It was good to network and learn about people's experiences and stories.”
