TUC General Secretary visit to Derbyshire

Brendan Barber, the TUC General Secretary visited Derbyshire to hear first hand how business is coping in the recession. Brendan was able to talk to employers and trade union reps about the current situation, while he was also able to see how workplace based learning is improving the prospects for those in manufacturing.
A visit to Derby College was the first order of the day, where a new protocol for the provision of trade union education was signed by the Principle, David Craggs and Mr Barber. Here a tour of the college enginering and catering centres enabled Brendan to talk to students about their courses and where they saw their futures.
An interview with Robin Johnston from teh Derby Evening telegraph appeared in the paper today and can be accessed here
