The MNA Racial Diversity Committee has identified acts of racial discrimination occurring across MNA bargaining units. Our members and leaders realized the need for a tool within our union to document and track these acts of racial discrimination in order to prove they are not isolated incidents, but a systemic problem that needs to be actively addressed.
This tool, the Racial Discrimination Reporting Form, is an internal MNA reporting form to be completed after every act of racial discrimination in the workplace. All recorded answers are confidential. Data from this form will be viewed, analyzed, and used for organizing purposes by MNA staff and appointed and elected leaders. The information gathered will be a critical first step needed to organize around creating an anti-racist workplace.
