This organisation was formed to improve the wellbeing of workers and their families on priority basis and also believes that the social dimension, incorporating the principles of democracy, social justice and human rights, should be an example to inspire other countries.  The ETUC defends fundamental social values such as solidarity, equality, democracy, social justice and cohesion.
