The policy making body of the TUC is the annual congress which meets for four days each year during September. Each affiliated union can send delegates. At congress 'motions' are proposed and discussed and form the basis of the TUC's work for the next year. Further information will be available from the TUC website.

Britain needs a pay rise | 2014 is set to be a challenging year for working people and the trade union movement – rising prices, shrinking pay packets, and unemployment rates that are still far too high, especially for younger workers. The government looks increasingly out of touch with the concerns of ordinary people, ignoring the deepening living standards crisis that not only hurts families and communities, but in the long run damages the economy too. It is against this backdrop that the trade union movement will come together, in Liverpool in September this year, to debate, discuss and decide how we can take action and organise to defend the people we represent and set out a vision for a better way.
