Time for Congress
TUC delegates are gathering on the seafront for a wild, wild time!
The papers for this year’s Annual meeting of the Trades Union Congress – which kicks off on Monday in Brighton - are now all available, including the Congress timetable, Composites motions and details of fringe meetings.
Your blogger, who will be on the UNISON delegation, is hoping to hear more about the unions campaigns to defend the NHS and to defend public services.
As Congress is not always thrill a minute stuff, I’ll blog only the best bits. Tony Blair’s reception by delegates may be interesting…
Always assuming I can get in – photo ID is being demanded for the first time at Congress this year (which is ironic since the report of the TUC General Council records the opposition of the TUC to ID cards!)
