About Trades Councils

 

Trades Union Councils bring unions together to campaign around issues affecting working people in their workplaces and local communities. Trades Union Councils aim to:

 

  • Raise public awareness of rights at work, and the union role in enforcing those rights.

  • Promote organising and recruitment drives to build union membership.

  • Support union and community campaigns for dignity and respect in the workplace and beyond.
