Nelson Mandela and Young Black Member Awards: Final call for nominations

The deadline to nominate Black members for the Nelson Mandela Award and Young Black Member Award is 25 August. Let’s celebrate members who make a difference in their communities, workplaces and union.

Nelson Mandela Award

Many members will be aware that Nelson Mandela was an honorary member of UNISON. In his lifetime he received over 260 awards including the Nobel Peace Prize.

To honour his achievements, the National Black Members’ Committee (NBMC) present the Nelson Mandela Award each year to a Black member who has gone above and beyond.

If you know someone who goes the extra mile to support members, who is passionate about racial equality and who champions fairer workplaces, please nominate them now.

Young Black Member Awards

Do you know a Black member, under 27 who should be nominated for the Young Black Member Award?

We are looking for branches and regions to nominate young Black members who are active in the union, dedicated to race equality and passionate about improving workplaces.
