Cambs TUC – About

Trades union councils promote working-class solidarity in local communities

What is a trades union council?

Trades union councils are local groups of trade unionists. Delegates are elected from affiliated trade union branches whose members live and/or work in the area. See the Affiliates tab to see the current list. If your Branch  wishes to affiliate you can do so by obtaining and completing an affiliation form from our Secretary Dave O’Brien –
