About the GFTU
We are affiliated with the GFTU which adds value and support to specialist unions and specialist sections of larger general unions.
The General Federation of Trade Unions is a friendly democratic organisation responsive to the needs of affiliated Trade Unions. There is no question or issue too large or small that an affiliate cannot refer to us. We seek to add value to specialist trade unions and sections of unions at various levels. With affiliation fees of less than £1 per annum, we believe we offer exceptional value.
Our annual programme gives an indication of the range of support we provide. From developing professional support for General Secretaries, to offering an exceptional programme of trade union management training, to youth and arts festivals, to initial reps training, to detailed specialist research and highly customised support for individual unions, we have a flexible and expert approach.
