Happy 150th Anniversary to the ATUC

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of Aberdeen Trades Union Council. We are planning a year of celebration of the proud history of Aberdeen TUC over those 150 years. We also want to recognise the many achievements of affiliated trade unions and associated community groups with whom we are proud to work.

The celebrations kick off with a film showing of Belonging:  The Truth Behind the Headlines, an award winning investigative documentary that looks at the events around 3 industrial disputes, 3 governments and over 3 decades. This event will be held at the Belmont Cinema on 26th January 2018 and has been sponsored by Unite the union.

The STUC General Council will hold their meeting in Aberdeen in March and Aberdeen City Council will hold a civic reception that evening in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the STUC. 

Towards the end of the year Aberdeenshire Council will host a civic lunch. Many other events are planned around our May Day and St Andrew's Day Marches and Rallies. Watch out for details.

We very much hope you will join us in celebrating our 150th anniversary.
