For the road ahead

TUCG

The Trade Union Co-ordinating Group (TUCG) brings together your Union and eight other national unions (BFAWU, FBU, NAPO, NUJ, NUT, PCS, POA, RMT, UCU) to co-ordinate campaigning activities in Parliament and beyond. 

Aims and objectives

The TUCG will promote greater co-operation and co-ordination between its members with regards to Parliamentary representation on its key issues and will work alongside supportive Members of Parliament on a cross-party basis with the specific purpose of representing the unions in the promotion of its key policy objectives, in particular: 

  • The eradication of low pay and the protection of working people's living standards by opposition to cuts in pay and pensions, the securing of a decent minimum wage and properly negotiated wage settlements

  • Opposition to the privatisation of public services and returning already-privatised sectors/services back into  public ownership with adequate investment and funding

  • The promotion of trade union rights, in particular the enactment of the Trade Union Freedom Bill

  • The promotion of equalities legislation to eliminate discrimination in pay, and conditions of employment

  • The promotion of a welfare state providing a decent living standard and dignity for those on social security, including a basic state pension rising in line with earnings

  • The setting of a new legislative framework for health and safety to ensure the laws and resources are available to secure quality of life at work.

  • The promotion of global justice, a sustainable environment and internationalism
