This year’s Congress is bound to be a particularly special event, as it will also celebrate 150 years since the very first Trade Union Congress took place at the Mechanics’ Institute in Manchester.

The first resolution passed by that meeting was that ‘the trades of the United Kingdom should hold an annual congress’.
