2019's congress takes place in Brighton from 8-11 September.
For the 151st TUC Congress we are sending a message to chancellor Sajid Javid to end the public service pensions robbery.
Our delegation of senior lay reps, led by PCS president Fran Heathcote, is speaking on a variety of motions and attending various fringe events throughout the 4 days.
We are proposing 2 motions to congress, one calls for e-balloting to be introduced for industrial action ballots and the second focuses on public service pensions.
Our fringe meeting at 12.45pm on Tuesday, 10 September at the Brighton Centre, also focuses on public sector pensions. Visitors to our stall can send the chancellor a postcard calling on him to end the public service pensions robbery and if you’re not at congress you can support our campaign by using our e-action.
Our delegation will also be speaking on a variety of other issues including:
- Social security
- Public sector pay
- Opposing outsourcing
- The climate emergency; and
- The need to elect a Corbyn-led government.
Our general secretary Mark Serwotka is chairing congress this year as the current president of the TUC. Mark took over the reins last year and described it as “an enormous privilege to be elected TUC president.”
During his year as president he has also chaired the TUC’s general council and executive committee. He has continued with his full-time PCS role throughout his time as TUC president.
