Who we are

Our democracy

TSSA is a democratic union. Our Executive Committee is the lay leadership of the TSSA and represents the geographical and industrial diversity and experience of our membership, from Ireland and every nation and the regions of Britain. From the President and Treasurer to each of the regional seats, they are elected to represent groups of TSSA members.

TSSA's General Secretary is a full time paid official elected by the whole membership of the union. They lead the union in every respect, speaking to industry leaders, government ministers, officials, media, and sister organisations to further the needs of TSSA members.

We are guided by our mission, vision and values which put our members' interests, alongside equality, fairness and welfare at the heart of what we do.
