Different Types Of Valuation Administrations

Among the key features of the programme is the establishment of a scrutiny group bringing together the three party leaders, the Chief Executive and representatives from the CRE, the local racial equality forum, and an external local government association. The group will be able to call people to account for their achievements as managers against laid-down racial equality targets. Ethnic minority staff groups will have direct access to the scrutiny group. An independent unit will be set up to investigate complaints of discrimination.

With the CRE’s help, we have been able to improve our services for members and help to protect them from injustice at work and in the union. The Commission for Racial Equality today lays down a challenge to negative racial stereotypes across British society with its biggest use yet of billboard advertising.  .

the Commission for Racial Equality said today in launching a report of a formal investigation into the transport workers’ union, RMT. The report, Racial Equality Right Down the Line, looks at how action by the CRE helped RMT to turn round its failure to protect Asian members and to become a union with a model racial equality practice.

The CRE started an investigation into the union in 1992 after it was clear that the industry’s and union’s internal procedures had failed to protect eight Asian railway guard members; they claimed that how much is my property worth racial discrimination by British Rail had stopped them from becoming train drivers. After the CRE took up the guards’ case, British Rail accepted that its selection procedures had adversely affected Asian applicants, and worked with the CRE to develop a fairer process.

The union recognized that it had a problem – and agreed that the best way to resolve it was to move itself to the forefront of best practice,’ says the report. Following a thorough process of investigation and support, ‘the CRE is very pleased to report that, working closely with us, the RMT has now adopted a series of measures which cover the essential steps for an effective racial equality policy,’ said Bob Purkiss, a CRE Commissioner and Chair of the TUC Race Committee.

The two ‘crucial’ measures adopted by RMT were a new system to deal with complaints of racial discrimination and harassment, and a new national committee of ethnic minority members. Other measures included extensive literature to make members and officials aware of the issues and their duties, training for officials on tackling racism, and ethnic monitoring of members, representatives, officers, and applicants for employment by the union.
