Since 1907, on the frontlines of the struggle for economic and social justice

We are the workers who
make society happen.

We are the Global Union Federation of Workers in Public Services.

We are your nurses, firefighters and emergency responders. We collect your recycling and rubbish, we keep your water running, we make sure the lights stay on. We are your librarians and frontline public service staff. We fight for quality public services for all.
