Northern TUC Regional Campaign Plan 2013-2015

Campaign Plan Logo

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.

This Saturday, 16th August, marks the start of the ‘People’s March for the NHS’ - a 300 mile march from Jarrow to Parliament Square in London. The march will be launched with a rally at Jarrow Town Hall car park at 10am.
