La TUC fundó el Partido Laborista Labour Party en 1906 y pagó los sueldos de los primeros parlamentarios MP - Member of Parliament del mismo. Por tradición ha existido un fuerte vínculo entre la TUC y el Partido Laborista. En la época de New Labour, sin embargo, este vínculo se ha debilitado. Existen TUCs también en Escocia y Gales.
