Scottish TUC Congress


A URTU delegation including Robert Monks (General Secretary), Brian Hart (National Officer) and Eric Drinkwater (President) are attending the Scottish TUC 2019 Annual Congress in Dundee, which takes place from 15 - 17 April. The theme of the Congress is ‘Organising and Winning' across the Scottish trade union movement.

Lynn Henderson, STUC President, opened the 2019 Congress saying;

"We organise not just in our workplaces, but channel our power as whole workers in our communities.

"We are beginning to win victories in unorganised sectors of the economy. The STUC's Better than Zero and the Young Workers' Project work together with a new generation of workers with no workplace collective culture.

"Returning to our Congress theme, Organising and Winning: organising may take many years but a victory can be won in an instant. When we win those victories, we stand up and organise again and again."
