European Trade Union Confederation Logo

The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) is the major trade union organisation representing workers at European level. The ETUC aims to ensure that the EU is not just a single market for goods and services, but is also a Social Europe, where improving the wellbeing of workers and their families is an equally important priority. The ETUC defends fundamental social values such as solidarity, equality, democracy, social justice and cohesion, the very same values which helped Europe to become a prosperous and competitive region with high living standards.
