The AGM will be held on Wed 5th March in the ATUC premises at John Londragan House, 22a Adelphi, Aberdeen and all delegates are encouraged to attend. The meeting will elect new Officers and Trustees and will consider a revised constitution and standing orders, which will be presented for approval.
Brian Carroll

 Brian Carroll, Interim Secretary, said, "We have had a very busy, and at times challenging, couple of years but I am delighted to say that we have now completed our action plan, and the ATUC is in a very good position moving forward.

"We have increased our numbers of affiliated unions and branches and we would like to thank them all for their support of Aberdeen TUC over recent times.

"Last year has been very productive, as will be seen from our Annual Report which has gone to print, and we are in good shape for the challenges ahead."

Tribute and thanks
Brian will be stepping down from the Secretary role at the AGM, and Alan Robertson, Acting President, paid tribute to all the work that Brian has done for the Trades Union Council.

Mark Chapman
"Brian has spearheaded the progress which the Aberdeen TUC has made over the past couple of years and has worked unstintingly to get the council back on its feet. Along with the Treasurer, Mark Chapman, and the Executive Committee, he has done sterling work on putting the ATUC accounts on a secure footing, and ensuring the ATUC has a bright future.

"We look forward to continuing our work with our constituent trade unions and like minded community groups to challenge the austerity measures of the UK Government, which have hit the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest and which have done so much damage to the living standards of working people."
