Trades union councils use their unique place in their community to promote a positive vision of trade unions - a democratic force for fairness and progress in the modern workplace in touch with the concerns of trade union members and the community.

Trades councils develop innovative and imaginative campaigning, build alliances and use national, local and regional opportunities to engage workers in key campaigns and support unions and their members where they choose to take industrial action.

This short film shows a just a small sample of their activities around the country during the past year. Please show the film at your union branch or trades council meeting and share on social media.
