Trade Union Family

Cooperation Within the Trade Union Movement

The network's task is to influence and raise issues related to the Baltic Sea region within the trade union movement. BASTUN cooperates with other trade union organisations that have interests in the region. Through such cooperation the network helps its member organisations to get their voices heard in international discussions, and organises various different actions.

All BASTUN member organisations are members of the ITUC (International Trade Union Confederation) and the ILO.

Nordic Sector Trade Union Confederations

Nordic sector trade union confederations unite Nordic trade unions and coordinate international work across different industrial branches. Some of the Nordic sector trade union confederations are active in the Baltic Sea Region.
