#heartunions week: February 8-14
13 January 2016
The TUC's heartunions week, from 8-14 February, will include a range of activities to celebrate the great work done by union reps and members in workplaces and society, as part of its campaign to oppose the damaging trade union bill.
The Big Workplace Meeting will take place across the country, with as many union branch meetings as possible taking place simultaneously at 12.30pm on Tuesday 9 February.
It is a key opportunity for you as union members to hear from Frances O’Grady, TUC general secretary, for a live broadcast. She will give an update on progress of the trade union bill and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. You can watch the broadcast (via YouTube) on the TUC website.
You can read the details of the bill, campaign activities, sign the petition to defend the right to strike and download a range of campaign materials on the TUC website.
The NUJ is encouraging chapels and branches to get involved. The TUC has a range of resources to help with whatever event you hold.
London independent broadcasting and new media branch is holding a special #heartunions social on Wednesday 10 February. All welcome.
