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.
Decent Jobs Week: 15-21 December 2014
There are more than 1.4 million zero-hours contracts in use, offering no steady work. Others, such as agency and casual workers, lose out on important rights and benefits. From 15 to 21 December, the TUC is organising Decent Jobs Week, a series of events across England and Wales that will raise awareness about Britain’s jobs’ crisis. Find out what is happening in your area and join the campaign for decent jobs, fairly paid.
Truth, lies and migrants: a guide to population and migration
The plain truth about economics
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.
Project ICARUS report
During 2012 SERTUC worked with seven other regional trade union confederations from France, Germany, Italy, Romania and Spain. The ICARUS project (Information and Consultation Approaches of Research coordinating good Union Standards) developed methods and tools to help promote better work between trade union reps, European Works Council reps, and trade union officials.
