National Council of Labour

Following the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany in June 1941, the TUC formed an Anglo-Soviet Trade Union Committee and a "Help for Russia" Fund, coordinated by the National Council of Labour. By June 1942, collections and fund-raising activities by unions, Labour Parties and the cooperative movement had already raised over 300,000 and the first consignments of clothing and medical supplies were shipped to N.Shvernik, secretary of All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions in Moscow.
