Fringe listing - Y&H conference

We have a fantastic range of fringe meetings taking place across Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd April. All delegates are welcome to attend and get involved in the debate.

Our fringe programme this year is free for visitors from across the movement. We'll have debates on organising for climate justice, health & safety in the pandemic, anti-racist organising, and digital campaigning.

We'll hear from speakers such as Sarah Jaffe, a US labor journalist; Bryan Simpson, Unite Hospitality Organiser from Glasgow; Shavanah Taj, Wales TUC General Secretary; and climate organisers fighting for justice.

See our full fringe programme below and register now for free!

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.
