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 1 page views.
