The European Capitals Trade Unions Network (ECTUN) is the informal Network of the Trade Union Organisations based in the European Capital cities and their Regions. All trade unions based in a European capital city – who’s National Confederation is an affiliate of the ETUC and/or of the PERC – can become members of the network.

The main objective of the Network is to enhance a regular exchange of information, experience, contacts and best practices, establishing spaces for dialogue among the Trade Unions of the Capital cities.

Moreover ECTUN aims to

  • Promoting and defend solidarity, workers’ rights, collective bargaining, employment and welfare, fight against social dumping and inequalities.
  • Developing actions and/or initiatives aimed to promote dignity of workers and contributing to the improvement of workers’ living and working conditions in the areas of the capital cities.

The network has a Permanent Committee and a Coordinator both elected by the plenary during the annual Conference, having a mandate of three years.
