The Trades Union Congress is the highest body in the UK trade union movement. Today their Young Workers Conference sent a resounding message of solidarity to the Fair Transport Europe campaign, as delegates unanimously approved a motion in support of the campaign from Nautilus. ETF affiliates TSSA and RMT also stood to back the motion, in a display of unity from UK transport unions. Only by working together within and across national borders can workers and their unions turn the tide on social dumping!

The approval of this motion follows an earlier decision by the full TUC to support our campaign. And one thing is clear: No matter inside or outside the EU, UK workers and their unions will always be a key part of our movement for dignity at work in Europe!

Nautilus is an international union, and a group will now make their way to Rotterdam for a Young Maritime Professionals’ Forum tomorrow, before joining our massive demonstration in Brussels on 27 March. Stay tuned for more updates!
