About this site

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep updated on news from your favourite websites. Using a special piece of software called a News Reader, you can subscribe to feeds like this one, and be alerted every time the site has news.

RSS also lets website owners easily incorporate a changing list of headlines from another site into their own sites or weblogs. You are welcome to use the TUC feed on your own site, but please let us know at alerts@tuc.org.uk if you do so.
