TUC in the South West

South West TUC launches new guide - Truth Lies & Migrants

South West TUC launches new guide - Truth Lies & Migrants

This booklet tries to bridge the gulf between how people think the population of the South West is made up and how it really is. It challenges the scaremongering and racist views of some groups and newspapers.
We take for granted our freedom to travel. Migration brings economic benefits and the richness of diversity but it can unsettle people. People least likely to meet a migrant are most likely to believe the scare stories. We need to address the fears with facts and the problems with solutions. Order or download your copy Truth Lies & Migrants.

Unions at Work in the South West - a publication showcasing the work of unions in the region's workplaces is available now. Click here to download your copy.
