This motion was passed by Streatham Constituency Labour Party on 2 November 2016.
This CLP notes that the Runnymede Trust has shown that profiles for each of the capital’s boroughs show Lambeth is the most unequal place to live for people from a BME background.
Furthermore it notes that Lambeth Council has a workforce that is 59% BME but all of the 26 most senior managers are white.
Research by UNISON shows that such disparity occurs across directorates.
We recognise that the Council has established an Equality Commission. We call upon the Commission to take evidence from UNISON and to address the issues raised on staffing in this motion in their report and recommendations.
