CWU Eastern Region
The Eastern Regional Committee represents some 20,000 members across Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire & Suffolk.
In the Eastern Region we have one of, if not, the fastest growing economies within the UK. Our proximity, and thriving trade ports into Europe, make the transportation of goods into the continent easier than to some UK Regions.
The Regional Committee strives to eradicate all the injustices that today's workers face. We as a Trade Union body know that the only way to eliminate our member's problems is by collective representation. This is why I am proud to serve the Branches, the membership and communities of the Eastern Region in our quest for equality in race, creed, gender and religion in the diverse society that we live, and work in.
As well as the full Regional Committee the Eastern Region has a Political Committee, Equality Committee, Women's Committee, Retired Committee and a Youth Comittee serving the membership,proactively progressing issues and the ethos of the CWU and theTrade Union Movement.
