Southern and Eastern TUC

About Southern and Eastern TUC

SERTUC, the Southern & Eastern Region of the TUC, is the largest of the TUC's six English regions and covers three of the former government regions: London, the South East, and East of England. Over two million trades unionists live and work within the region.

The Regional Council is appointed annually by affiliates and county associations of trades councils and meets four times a year to discuss both how to achieve policy determined at the national Trades Union Congress and to make specific policies on regional issues. At its Annual General Meeting, it elects officers and an Executive Committee that meets monthly.

Affiliated trade unions and county associations also nominate to SERTUC's industrial and equality subgroups who use their industrial and life experience to inform the activities of the Regional Council.

The SERTUC office administers the Regional Council, delivers services to affiliates, represents the TUC in relations with public bodies, and campaigns for Congress policies.

New resources from SERTUC are available at http://sertucresources.wordpress.com 

The site includes links to SERTUC's general publications, but was specifically established to provide an easy and ongoing link to a new series of "plain truth" guides to counter the lies and hogwash from this government on its economic policies - the first two explain the "debt" and the "deficit" - essential reading for all activists.
