Trade Union Guide for Migrant Workers

29. 1. 07
The Trade Union Congress produced a guide for migrant workers, tackling the most frequently asked questions and providing the information they deemed necessary to help labour migrants succeed in the UK labour market.


The TUC is formed from around 70 affiliated unions representing around 7 million working people in the UK. It is not affiliated with the government, employers or any political party. The Trade Union Congress meets once a year for four days where its members decide upon the direction of its work for the following year.

The TUC produced the report to help migrant workers in the UK who they felt were being exploited. Part of the reason for their exploitation was believed to be the lack of knowledge of employment regulations in the UK.

The publication is a brief overview of the perceived most important aspects of the employment rules as well as useful contacts for migrant workers. It is available in electronic and paper format in Czech, English, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, French and Spanish.

The contents of the 16 page publication are:
Welcome to the UK.

Your rights as a worker
Working time rights

Health and safety protection
