The Southern and Eastern Regional Council of the Trades Union Congress represents TUC affiliated trade unions in London, the South East and the East of England.

Trade unions nominate delegates to the Regional Council, which meets quarterly to discuss both how to achieve policy determined at the annual Trades Union Congress, and to make specific policies on regional issues.

SERTUC has a number of sub-groups (to which unions and county associations of trades councils send delegates) that advise the Regional Council. Each sub-group determines its own agenda and activities. Sub-groups are:

  • Construction Campaign Task Group
  • Creative and Leisure Industries Committee
  • Disabled Workers' Network
  • International Affairs Committee
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender Network
  • Pensioners Network
  • Public Services Committee
  • Race Relations Committee
  • Transport Industries Network
  • Women's Rights Committee
  • Young Workers' Network

Every union is entitled to nominate delegates (the exact number relates to the union's size) to these sub-groups.

These sub-groups are either equality or industry based and are a great opportunity for trade union officials and lay members to involve themselves in both policy and leadership positions within the TUC.
