TUC in the South West

About South West TUC

The South West TUC is one of 6 regional offices of the TUC. More than 1 in 5 (22.2%) workers in the South West are a member of a trade union. We represent their voices by working closely with trade unions to ensure we improve workers’ rights and promote decent jobs in the South West.

SWTUC also supports and furthers the TUC’s objectives and campaigns on a regional level, partnering with regional trade unions, their members, and relevant stakeholders to achieve these goals.
