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 125 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.
6 July 2017: At the July meeting of Chelmsford TUC delegates received a report on the huge demonstration in Colchester against cuts to the NHS; a CD video has been made which can be seen on UTube. A further report came from their delegate to the Annual Conference of Trades Councils where their motions on defending the NHS and health and safety in the workplace were accepted. This Conference was held in Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, and was attended by 79 delegates.
