Croydon Trades Union Council Meetings


Croydon May Day March - 1 

 All Croydon TUC meetings take place at Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon, CR0 1BD, normally on the 2nd Thursday of each month. The start time is 7.30pm. Premises open from 7pm. All trades union members are welcome to attend, but voting is restricted to delegates from affiliated branches.



FRIDAY 11th August 2023 at 7.30pm at Ruskin.


We are pleased to invite you to our  FREE SCREENINGS   of two important documentaries on the British state's attack on lawful trade union pickets: Justice for the Shrewsbury Pickets (Platform Films, 2011) and A Lesson in Tenacity (Unite the union, 2023).

The trials, convictions and sentencing began fifty years ago, in revenge for the previous year's successful building workers' strike. It took 48 years for these vicious miscarriages of justice to be overturned. The struggle of workers to protect their terms and conditions continues in the face of increasingly hostile anti-trade union legislation.  

The screenings will be followed by a discussion on The Shrewsbury 24 Justice Campaign, with Garry Davis, at Ruskin House (Cedar Hall), 23 Coombe Road, Croydon CR0 1BD. Ruskin Club Bar Open at 7pm


The next Croydon TUC general meeting is on Thursday the 14th September 2023 7.30pm at Ruskin House. All trade union members welcome.
