In 1868 at the Mechanics' Institute in Manchester a meeting took place that became the first successful attempt to bring together the trades unions. This exhibition celebrates 150 years of the Trades Union Congress and looks at the continuing need for unions now.
An accompanying booklet is available for purchase here.
And on Thursday 17 May we hosted a celebratory event alongside our exhibition, with Clare Coatman from the North West TUC young workers’ project talking about the future of unions, and reaching out to young workers.
Exhibitions are open Wednesdays to Fridays 1-5pm, and the first Saturday of most months 10am-4pm.
