Union Island comes to the TUC

TUC Congress guideIt’s the UK union movement’s annual convention this week, in Brighton on the UK’s south coast. TUC Congress is the policy making body for the Trade Union Congress, and sets the priorities for the union movement’s work over the coming year.

This year, there’s a focus on online organising, with a fringe meeting on Web 2.0 and unions, promotions for new communities for different groups of union stakeholders (including Union Island), and a makeover for the Congress Guide – the magazine format programme of business that all attendees use.

We were able to stage a little photoshoot on Union Plaza. The buildings designed for us by Matthaios Aquacade of Citrus Virtual make a very nice backdrop, but the stars are some of our users – Many thanks to our glamorous models for helping out!
