Unite assistant general secretary for equalities and for transport and food sectors, Diana Holland, organised the confererence.
“Migrant Workers are and always have been an important part of building our union’s strength,” she said, commenting after the event. “The conference brought together Unite reps who are migrant workers [pictured] from across our industrial sectors — celebrating achievements, opposing discrimination and division, and strengthening our industrial voice.
“I was very proud to be responsible for organising this event which was truly inspiring,” she added. “As Unite’s assistant general secretary for equalities and for our transport and food sectors, working closely with manufacturing and services sectors too, we will now be taking forward the positive ideas generated.”
