Nautilus members are aiming to continue the Union's fairness campaigns at this year's TUC Congress, which will again take place online due to Covid.
Each year, Congress meets to consider motions brought by the TUC's 48 affiliated unions, which represent around 5.5 million members in England and Wales.
Nautilus general secretary Mark Dickinson serves on the TUC's governing body,
the General Council.
This year's event will take place online between 12 and 14 September, and Nautilus delegates hope to raise the Build Back Fairer campaign, as well as other key issues for the maritime sector.
Members who would like to get involved in TUC Congress are invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
