Following the Special Delegates Conference in March 1996, the Executive informed delegates that they would be seeking "two candidates" nominated by branches to attend the TUC Conference annually.

This years TUC Conference will be held in Liverpool from Sunday 10th September – Wednesday 13th September 2023. 

In accordance with the Unions Policy, could Branches forward the names of any individuals who are interested in attending to  by Thursday 1st June 2023.  Members should be aware that expenses will be met by the Union in accordance with Rule 17.1, but they will be required to utilise their own Annual Leave.

The Executive welcomes applications from all areas of the Unions membership and wishes to encourage candidates from the female, black and ethnic minority and LGBT Groups to consider applying.


Your help and assistance on this matter is greatly appreciated.


Yours sincerely



General Secretary
