The Union Makes Us Strong: TUC History Online is a partnership initiative between London Metropolitan University and the Trades Union Congress in support of their strategies in lifelong learning, made possible through a grant from the New Opportunities Fund (now the Big Lottery Fund) as part of their NOF-Digitise programme.

Trade unions have played, and will continue to play, a decisive role in shaping economic and social developments in Britain - yet much of their history is at present unknown and inaccessible to the public. These images provide a dynamic new resource allowing us to connect with the working lives of our predecessors, helping to analyse historical developments and to build for the future. The website includes a Tutors' pack for union and other adult learners.

For details of what you can find on the website go to Site Information or click on the Tabs above. You can see Tony Benn speaking at the website launch in 2004.

We hope that you find this website interesting and useful and that you will visit other websites, The Workers' War and Winning Equal Pay. Please find time to complete our feedback form and tell us what you think. Any detailed enquiries would be sent by email.
