An anti-racist resolution that condemns all forms of hatred and prejudice has been passed by Wisbech, March and district trades council.
The union branches are now being urged to adopt the resolution which was passed by Fenland District Council at its January meeting.
It comes after a worrying increase in reported hate crime across the country.
The resolution will be read at a Peace Rally in King's Lynn on January 25.
The "Build Bridges Not Walls" protests around the time of Donald Trump's visit to this country "emphasised the anxiety that the extremism developing in the US might spread here", said union officials.
