A jobs guarantee for young people, a living wage in public and private sectors, public services run for communities not profit, and a stronger voice for workers are among the TUC's five key campaign priorities in the run up to the general election, as set out in a new campaign plan.
Agreed by the TUC General Council, the plan is for the whole trade union movement and the aim is to spread its message around workplaces and communities right across Britain. A pdf document of the plan is available below, and the TUC is asking trades unionists to forward it to their contacts, colleagues and friends.
The campaign for jobs, growth and a new economy will mobilise resistance to austerity, with a series of events across the UK this summer, and will also provide a platform for advocates of pro-growth policies and new economic ideas. This will include a lecture at the TUC by former US labour secretary and fierce critic of UK austerity Robert Reich.
