With the mass de – industrialisation of our economy and over 30 years of attacks on Trade Union rights in the UK, the old methods of workplace organisation are inadequate and long out of date, they no longer meet the needs of today’s workers facing short term contracts, agency work and zero hours contracts. Come along and take part in the debate on how we can help fight back. Speakers / Campaigns below …..

Tuesday 9th February – Local Union Branch activity

The TUC and all affiliated unions are asking local union branches to do some activity with their members on this day. This can involve stewards leafleting their members, special branch meetings or sending a press release. It’s YOUR chance to speak out about the Tories’ plans to attack our right to strike, make unprecedented interference in our internal affairs and undermine union funding of the Labour Party – and tell your members about it!

Materials are available from your Union or from Regional TUC Office.

Frances O’Grady TUC General Secretary is broadcasting a live message to union branches at lunchtime 1230hrs on this day which you can tune into on the TUC website
