Southwark Trades Council

Group

From the website: "Each London borough is served by a trade union council (also known as a trades council or TUC). They are registered by the Trades Union Congress. They are organisations consisting of delegates from the trade union branches active locally, in both the private and public sectors. Trade union councils frequently also invite student unions, pensioners’ groups, tenants associations, anti-racist organisations and other community groups to join their meetings in an associate capacity.

Trades Councils are intended to spearhead campaigns against cuts to the public sector through the trades council because that is where we can join with the community to defend services."
