The TUC Member Trustee Network is here to provide support to trustees to enable them to carry out their duties professionally and effectively. Through the Network you can receive regular updates on regulatory and investment issues, a quarterly newsletter, access to training and conferences, and the opportunity to meet and talk with fellow member trustees at other funds. The Network currently covers 1,000 participants.

The TUC encourages all trade union member trustees to participate in the Network. If you are a member but your fellow member trustees are not, please encourage them to join too.
