SATUC AGM Presentation

  2. 2. By<br />Ryan Mc Nulty<br />Paul Gallagher<br />Introduction<br /><br />
  3. 3. Delegates elected by trade union branches which meet or have members working or living within the area meet as Trades Union Councils.<br />A union branch will normally affiliate to the trades union council in the area in which it meets. Each branch will then send delegates to the trades union council's meetings. These branches pay an affiliation fee.  Our trades union council is open to all trade unionists to attend although only delegates can vote.<br />Delegates elect officers from amongst themselves to represent the views and priorities of the constituent branches and to take responsibility for working for and supporting the policy of Congress and the TUC General Council. This is because trades union councils are registered with the TUC, rather than being entirely independent bodies.<br /><br />Trade Union Councils<br />
  4. 4. The Strabane Trade Union Council is responsible for:• implementing ICTU policy in Strabane.<br />• co-ordinating union activities and campaigns, involving more than one union.<br />• providing assistance with research, negotiations and advocacy to affiliated organisations.<br />• lobbying for social and industrial reforms.• providing a public point of contact for general enquiries on unions.<br />Aims<br /><br />

HMRC has accepted that over £40 billion in tax is lost to fraud and avoidance every year. PCS and many other tax analysts believe that this figure is much higher in the region of £120 billion.The cuts aren't inevitable and the coalition government needs to stop unnecessary tax repayments and close all tax avoidance loop holes.George Osbourne can start by paying the correct amount of tax himself and by ensuring that Philip Green the owner of the Arcadia group and government advisor of the cuts pays his fair share of tax too!<br /><br />
