ETUC is the European Trade Union Confederation. Their goal is to provide a single voice to all European workers to have a stronger say in EU decision-making. This united action 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.
ETUC is doing important work on the theme of disability to defend equal rights of people with disabilities and inclusive labour markets. They work with the European Disability Forum and other NGOs to promote equality and maintain vital public services as disabled people of working age still face massive discrimination in the workplace.
