TUC Congress 2019

The 151st annual TUC Congress 2019 will be held at The Brighton Centre, Brighton from 8-11 September 2019.

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.

Congress is attended by about 600 delegates from our 48 affiliated unions, has an exhibition, a fringe programme and receptions and an annual General Council dinner. Around 3,000 people will come through the doors over the course of the four days to take part in debate, the fringe, to exhibit or to report on the policy debates at Congress. This is a high-profile media event, widely regarded as the first big set piece occasion after the summer break, before the start of the political party conferences.

Take a no deal Brexit off the table

Millions of livelihoods and the future of manufacturing communities across the UK are hanging in the balance. The game of playing roulette with people’s lives needs to end. A no-deal Brexit needs to be taken off the table and a deal secured which ensures an on-going customs arrangement and tariff free, frictionless trade secured."
