Northern TUC Regional Campaign Plan 2013-2015
The Northern TUC enjoys the benefit of well organised, cohesive, broad and deep engagement from a wide range of trade unions in the north east and Cumbria.
The Regional Campaign Plan seeks to support workers in struggle and to enable trade unions to continue to be a progressive force for good, making real and positive difference to working people in the region.
