About the Midlands TUC
The Midlands TUC provides a voice for working people in the region. For up to date information on Midlands campaign events against the cuts visit the Midlands TUC blog.
"Every Regional Council provides an opportunity to get out and campaign", says TUC Midlands Regional Secretary Rob Johnston, pictured with the Chair of the Region, Eleanor Smith. So, on February 22nd before our Annual General Meeting we held a short campaign event at the Brian Clough statue in Nottingham. The event "Nottingham Needs a Pay Rise", attracted 25 or so delegates to the Regional Council who spoke to the Nottingham public about our campaign.
We were joined by Nottingham South MP Lillian Greenwood and members of the Nottingham and Mansfield trades union council. Below are images of the day, both from the "Nottingham Needs a Pay Rise" event and from the Annual Meeting.
The Midlands TUC also provides the home for unionlearn in the region. Unionlearn provides a programme of accredited courses for trade union representatives whilst also promoting learning opportunities for trade union members. Visit unionlearn at: www.unionlearn.org.uk
