'Working for a Future that Works'
The Trades Union Councils
Programme of Work for 2012 - 2013
The Trades Union Councils Programme of Work for 2012 - 2013 is published today. This ambitious programme of work has been drawn up by the Trades Union Councils Joint Consultative Committee (TUCJCC) and is based on the decisions of the 2012 trades union councils annual conference held in Coventry in May. There are four main areas that make up the programme of work:
Sustainable Development and the Green Workplace;
Fighting the Cuts;
Community Campaigning and fighting the far right; and
Unemployed Workers Centres
These are set against the severe recession the UK is experiencing and the attacks by the Coalition government on working people and the public sector. The programme of work highlights the TUC's and the unions' campaign for an economic alternative and for A Future that Works and suggests ways in which trades union councils can take the campaigns to their community.
In addition the programme of work contains a useful list of publications and contact details that could assist trades union councils with their campaigning, the resolutions that were passed at this year's annual conference and contact details for the lay members of the TUCJCC.
Not only does the programme of work set out ideas for activity by trades union councils for the coming year, but it also highlights the important work that trades union councils do to support union members in their areas and their commitment to defending their local communities.
