Council of Nordic Trade Unions
What we are
The Council of Nordic Trade Unions (NFS) is an organisation for cooperation between national trade union confederations in the Nordic region. Our mission is to foster close cooperation between our member organisations and promote the interests of trade union members through exchanging experiences, lobbying and cooperation to reach shared goals. We have 15 affiliated organisations and represent over 8.5 million organised workers throughout the Nordic region.
What we do
Our priorities are focused on four main areas: The Nordic region, the Baltic Sea region, Europe and Globally. Priorities that span all of these areas include safeguarding the Nordic collective bargaining model, ensuring job security and stability on the labour market, and ensuring a fair distribution of shared social resources both nationally and internationally. Trade union rights and human rights form the basis for our mission and all our work.
