Chelmsford & District Trades Union Council is affiliated to the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the Essex County Association of Trades Councils.
Its membership is made up of delegates from mainly locally based trade union branches that are affiliated to the TUC. Its aim is to promote the objectives of the TUC and to defend the interests of trade unionists and their families within Chelmsford.
We have a wide range of content on this site, including sections on labour and trade union boycotts, the history of the union and labour movements, working class culture, songs, poetry and literature, and politics, equal opportunities and workplace information, as well as many links to the wider labour movement. In the last 24 hours we have had 152 page views.
- a regular event on our annual calendar. Here we are in Central Park on 28 April 2017 with guest speaker, Dan McCarthy National Vice-President NASUWT. To read his excellent speech go to our Health & Safety page.
Chelmsford TUC has a proud record of attending various Careers Day events in local schools. Here we are at Brentwood School where we distributed hundreds of leaflets promoting trade unions in 2017.
And here we are promoting trade unionism in Chelmsford High Street.
7 September 2017: At their September meeting delegates to Chelmsford TUC planned, and will be supporting, a large number of activities over the coming months. They were pleased to hear that the campaign to stop the downgrading of the Accident and Emergency units at Broomfield and Southend hospitals had been won, but agreed to study the new plans with great care. Delegates will be attending a conference in London covering ‘Our NHS and Social Care in Crisis - fighting back to win’. Having noted the Government’s plan to initiate new boards to vet patients before surgery, the secretary will be writing to Mid Essex CCG to express our opposition. It was agreed to support the campaign to ‘Scrap the Public Sector Pay Gap’ and local activity is being planned for 17 October.
