This from the Socialist Unity Blog. As a member of Southwark Trades Council,I welcome the fact that the role of Trades Councils has been recognised bythe TUC. Some of the best activism is coming from Trades Councils.Joseph Healy
From the national chair of the National Shop Stewards Network, Dave Chappell:"With the overwhelming vote in favour of bringing the Trades Councils back into the TUC for the first time in 113 years, the longest standing English trade union movement injustice was righted, and little bit of trade union history was made.
Congratulations to Bob Crow, the RMT,especiallly the Bristol Rail Branch RMT, who first took the motion to their union conference, and all who lobbied within their own unions."
