    Goals / remit

Who we are, who we represent:
UNI Europa is a European trade union federation. It unites national trade unions organising in service and skills sectors in 50 different countries. With 320 affiliated trade union organisations, UNI Europa represents 7 million workers. UNI Europa represents workers in key service sectors vital to the welfare of European citizens: Commerce, Postal services and logistics, Information Technologies and Communication, Financial services, Temporary agency workers, Social insurance, Property services (cleaning, security), Graphical sector, Media, entertainment and the arts, Tourism, Hair and beauty, Gaming, Sport.
UNI Europa is the recognised European social partner of the above-mentioned sectors, representing the interest of workers and employees in the policy-making process in Europe.

Our structure:
UNI Europa is part of UNI global union whose headquarters are in Nyon (Switzerland). UNI Europa is based in Brussels. UNI Europa is organised by sector and regions. Each sector and region is directly represented on the Executive Committee. UNI Europa’s regional conference takes place every four years.
UNI Europa is a member of the European Trade Union Confederation.

How we work:
Social dialogue for democracy:
European integration demands a Europe-wide system of industrial relations. Sectoral social dialogue committees have been set up in 10 different UNI Europa sectors. UNI Europa aims to strengthen the social dialogue in sectors where it already exists and to establish sectoral social dialogue where it does not.

There are 931 European Works Councils in operation. Around 230 of them are wholly or jointly coordinated by UNI Europa. UNI Europa also supports and guides workers European Companies (SE).

UNI Europa is helping to build union solidarity among the many workers employed by multinational companies in different countries.

Monitoring European legislation: UNI Europa produces a Legislative Report keeping affiliates up-to-date with important EU initiatives.

UNI Europa is active in developing and carrying out European projects, many co-funded by the European Union.

UNI Europa supports the activities and priorities of its national affiliates and helps to promote them at European level. It creates a forum for affiliated unions to exchange their national experiences and to learn from one another.
