Union Professionals

Welcome to the homepage of TUC Union Professionals. Here you’ll find details of all TUC Union Professionals courses, together with details of other TUC products and services. 


A working knowledge of employment law is essential for most union officers and many staff.

One of our most popular courses Employment Law online, is run as  three modules which  cover the fundamentals of how employment law is made,and the remedies available if not properly applied.

The modules are particularly suitable for newly appointed officers and staff. More experienced officers will find it useful as an update or refresher course.

Each module contains some online work which can be done with some flexibility, and a one-day classroom based session at Congress House.

Each module covers the following:

Module 1how Employment Law is made

Module 2 applying the law

Module 3negotiating and influencing


We also offer shorter classroom-based courses.  These are either one or two-day courses covering important aspects of union work.
