Trades Union Councils bring unions together to campaign about issues affecting working people and their families, in local workplaces and communities.
They are affiliated to the Trades Union Congress, at National and Regional level.
In Somerset we have formed a County Association of trades union councils and meet regularly with comrades from Yeovil,Taunton,Weston & Bath Trades Union Councils.
Your union branch can affiliate and elect representatives to Bridgwater Trades Union Council which meets monthly. The affiliation fee is 10p per member and this is our main source of funding.
OUR MAIN AIMS IN THE WORKPLACE
We want people to know what their rights are at work and how to enforce them -including agency workers.
Trade union organised workplaces have better pay and conditions. We want to help build trades union membership and help activists to recruit and organise. If you are temporary or permanent, part time or full time, self-employed or agency, please contact us.
We want dignity and respect for workers in the workplace and the community,regardless of gender,race,colour,sexual orientation,creed or status. We want an end to bullying and harrasment- Bridgwater workers together!
History shows that you don't achieve your aims by wishing and hoping. We campaign actively with other local groups on issues like jobs, pensions,benefits,public services,transport and the environment.
