Please note, unless stated otherwise, fringes are organised by affiliated unions. We have listed these fringe events in good faith as they are an opportunity for unions to bring their members concerns to the foreground for discussion. Topics and content discussed in fringe events do not necessarily represent TUC policy, which can only be made at Congress, and are the responsibility of the organising unions involved.
