Southern and Eastern TUC

World Day for Decent Work - Friday 7 October 2016 


Since 2008 the ITUC has been organising the World Day for Decent Work on Friday 7 October 2016.

No action is too big or too small for World Day for Decent Work, it is a day for mobilisation all over the world. Decent work must be at the centre of government actions to bring back economic growth and build a new global economy that puts people first.

The European Capitals Trade Union Network (ECTUN) has agreed this statement reflecting the voice of trade union confederations all across Europe.

About Southern and Eastern TUC

SERTUC, the Southern & Eastern Region of the TUC, is the largest of the TUC's six English regions and covers three of the former government regions: London, the South East, and East of England. Over two million trades unionists live and work within the region.

The Regional Council is appointed annually by affiliates and county associations of trades councils and meets four times a year to discuss both how to achieve policy determined at the national Trades Union Congress and to make specific policies on regional issues. At its Annual General Meeting, it elects officers and an Executive Committee that meets monthly.

Affiliated trade unions and county associations also nominate to SERTUC's industrial and equality subgroups who use their industrial and life experience to inform the activities of the Regional Council.

The SERTUC office administers the Regional Council, delivers services to affiliates, represents the TUC in relations with public bodies, and campaigns for Congress policies.

Bognor Regis FC deservedly shunted Dulwich Hamlet FC into a 1 - 3 reverse, which was a set-back for our generous hosts and the many trade unionists who swelled the 2,217 crowd on Saturday, especially those who are committed republicans.
