The TUC is the voice of Britain at work. Our overall objectives are to raise the quality of working life and promote equality for all. Our mission is to be a high profile organisation that campaigns successfully for trade union aims and values; assists trade unions to increase membership and effectiveness; cuts out wasteful rivalry; and promotes trade union solidarity.

Just as individual workers benefit by joining together in a union, so unions gain strength by acting together through the TUC. The TUC brings unions together to draw up common policies on issues that matter to people at work.

We represent more than 5.6 million workers in 50 unions. Globally we are part of a union family with 180 million members in more than 160 countries. Our unions range in size from Unite with 1.3 million members to small specialist unions with only a few hundred. Most unions are also affiliated to the Global Union Federation for their sector.
