TUC Multi-Country Appeal: Solidarity with trade unionists in Burma, Palestine and Zimbabwe

TUC Aid is appealing for funds to help trade unionists in three of the most challenging environments: Burma, Palestine and Zimbabwe. This is your chance to put solidarity into action. Help fellow trade unionists create democracy and fight poverty. Make a difference.

TUC Aid welcomes personal donations or contributions from union bodies. Fund-raising ideas are set out on our website, but why not organise a collection at your next union meeting? You can even just the JustGiving website to fundraise on behalf of TUC Aid. To donate directly (and ensure we get the tax back), click on the Donate Online button below, or send a cheque made out to TUC Aid (Multi-Country Appeal) to Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS. A standing order form is available here. And you can tell your employer to make regular, tax efficient payments to TUC Aid direct from you and your colleagues' wages through Give As You Earn.

This page will be regularly updated with news about the appeal, information about trade unionism in these three countries, and reports and case studies from the projects your money is helping to run.

To receive regular notification about additions to this page please sign up for email alerts, specifying TUC Aid Appeal as a subject.
