Here's the welcome/about statement for the new blog. Can anyone could point me in the direction of other trades councils' blogs?
Welcome to the new blog for North Staffordshire’s Trade Union Council.
NSTUC is an active, campaigning organisation that brings together trade unionists from all over North Staffordshire. It exists as a lay body of activists delegated by their respective trade union branches to launch campaigns, deliver solidarity, and help coordinate the actions of the local labour movement. Among our regular activities are organising public meetings, mobilising for demonstrations and marches, anti-fascist activity, days out, and much, much else besides.
Our meetings are open to all trade unionists. If your branch is not affiliated you can arrange it via the website.
In recent years as the numbers of local strikes and campaigns have mushroomed so has the visibility of NSTUC. This blog intends to enhance that visibility by carrying news of upcoming activities, reports, and information of use to all workers in North Staffs – whether a member of a trade union or not.
As contributors to this blog hail from a variety of political and trade union backgrounds, all views expressed here should be taken as those of the individual author and not the trades council as a whole.
