UNI Europa

As the European trade union federation for 7 million service workers, UNI Europa speaks for the sectors that constitute the backbone of economic and social life in Europe. Headquartered in Brussels, UNI Europa represents 272 national trade unions in 50 countries. Increasingly, the companies in our sectors operate across borders. Trade union action across borders is essential to ensure workers’ interests are on an equal footing with those of the bosses. Using strength in one place to build a strong workers’ voice across the region is vital for the sustainability of our movement over the long term. Through UNI Europa, the unions of workers in the services sectors coordinate to build workers’ power. With their joint organising efforts, they work together to embed rooted and inclusive structures for durable progress from the workplace up. They advocate together within different institutional spaces, including the EU, to ensure policies favour working people.
