Established 1887 the Oxford and District TUC is a democratic organisation made up of volunteers, delegated by union branches, who organise practical solidarity with working people in our district, across the country and internationally. We support trade union education and back campaigns – for instance – for equal treatment of people irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation, against cuts in services, for a living wage for everyone, against workplace bullying, for decent pensions and against imperialist wars.
The Trades Union Council meets on the first Thurs of the month at 7pm in Oxford Townhall.
The Liberty Tree is a polemical, left-wing, feel-good, juke-box comedy musical with singing, dancing and drama. A great night out for rebels, radicals, socialists, anarchists, trade unionists, militants, progressives, agitators, freethinkers and subversives!
The play is being produced by Public Domain Productions and The Ruskin Festival out of Ruskin College, Oxford. The plan is to perform the production in Oxford and London in September 2014 with weekend rehearsals for the 2 community casts over the summer of 2014. We are working towards a launch event during the Ruskin Festival on Sat May 24th. The play has yet to be performed but the script has already won a national playwriting competition.
Public Domain works with a wide range of national and local charities, institutions, trade unions, councils, authorities, political parties and radical organisations as supporters, allies and sponsors.
