Anti-Sectarianism

Anti-Sectarianism, Anti-Racism, Workers’ Rights

Trademark’s record of promoting an anti-sectarian, anti-racist and workers’ rights agenda dates back to the early days of the peace process.

We have unrivalled experience of dealing with incidents of sectarian and racial discrimination and intimidation in the workplace. In collaboration with trade unions we have worked to address these challenges in the public and private employment sectors, from high-profile disputes in major multinationals to low level problems affecting small-and-medium enterprises.

Our workplace interventions include training, mediation and advice in design and implementation of organisational policies and procedures in accordance with equality legislation and guidance. We also provide one-to-one support and advice to workers who are experiencing harassment or intimidation on account of their religion, political opinion, race, age, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

Trademark takes a bold approach to sectarianism and racism in order to break through the politeness, avoidance and denial that has tended to inhibit community relations progress in Northern Ireland. This approach is underpinned by an analysis of sectarianism and racism as the products of intersecting historical processes, structural power dynamics and material conditions rather than simply a matter of individual attitudes and behaviours.

Trademark’s record and approach has enabled the organisation to act as a nexus between communities and the organised labour movement, acquiring a reputation for working within and between constituencies such as ex-prisoners and former combatants, deprived interface and border communities, migrant workers and minority ethnic communities.
