Croydon Trades Union Council

Charity & Voluntary

Croydon TUC was formed in 1890 at the height of the New Unionist wave of organising among semi- and low-skilled and low pay workers. Out of that agitation emerged a labour movement agenda for how local authorities should operate, including the 8 hour day, fair wages, direct (instead of contract) labour, and the development of services for the benefits of the working class. From 1918 to the 1960s Trades Councils and Labour Parties were linked together in the same organisation. The membership of Croydon TUC comprises workplace and retired members branches of National Union of Teachers, Communications Workers Union, General & Municipal Workers, Fire Brigade, Musicians Union, Public Servants, RMT, Transport & general Workers Unit, TSSA, UCATT (builders), Unison and USDAW.
