About Us

The Trade Union Left Forum was formed in 2012 by a number of union activists from both public-sector and private-sector unions. They believed that trade unionists needed a space, both physical and on line, in which to debate the burning issues of the day.

And so the Trade Union Left Forum aims to stimulate class-based critical debate within the trade union movement and to foster trade union and community organising for a meaningful transformation of Ireland towards socialism.

The TULF uses its web site and social media to encourage critical thinking on trade union, community and workers’ issues as well as hosting meetings where activists can come together for honest and comradely discussion. So far a number of successful forums and events have been held, and discussion documents have also been produced and distributed.

To get involved, just sign up to our newsletter on this web site and you will then receive e-mail notifications of events. We also encourage activists from the community and trade union movements to submit articles to us for publication on our web site.
