Your General Secretary Addressing TUC 2022

The Trades Union Congress is the annual meeting of all TUC affiliates to set policy for the TUC for the year ahead, as well as to hear reports of progress from the previous year.

Policy is set through an affiliated union putting a motion to Congress which is then debated. Over the two and a half days, around 60 motions were heard.

I was proud to speak on three Motions – Better PPE, a more effective HSE along with Equal Pay for minority strands such as BME, Disabled Workers and LGBT+ workers.

I was proud to move a motion to Congress on behalf of the TUC LGBT+ Committee, relating to supporting trans rights.

All 4 motions passed and are now part of TUC policy.
