Southern and Eastern TUC

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.

Fair Pay Fortnight: 16 Feb - 1 March 2015

Fair Pay Fortnight, 16 Feb - 1 March 2015

From 16 February to 1 March 2015 the TUC is running Fair Pay Fortnight, a series of events across the country that will raise awareness about Britain’s cost of living crisis.

Working people in the UK are seeing their living standards squeezed harder and harder every year. The cost of energy, food and housing is soaring but wages aren’t keeping up.

That’s why we’re running Fair Pay Fortnight and that’s why Britain needs a pay rise. Find out what is happening in your area and join the campaign for fair pay and decent jobs.
