The STUC (Scottish Trades Union Congress) represents over 540,000 trade unionists, the members of 39 affiliated trade unions and 20 Trades Union Councils.

We speak for trade union members in and out of work, in the community and in the workplace, in all occupational sectors and across Scotland. 

Our purpose is to co-ordinate, develop and articulate the views and policies of the trade union movement in Scotland and to promote: trade unionism; equality and social justice; the creation and maintenance of high quality jobs; and the public sector delivery of services. We support our affiliates in recruiting, organising and empowering workers to work collectively to win better terms and conditions at work.

The STUC seeks to influence local government in Scotland, the government at Westminster and the European Union.
