About us

We are the trade union driver of change for a stronger knowledge based Europe, real freedom of mobility and quality in working life for European professionals and managers.

We voice the cross-sectoral interest of professionals and managers through advocacy, social dialogue and joint work with member organisations and cooperation partners.


As one of the three recognised European cross-sectoral social partners we represent six million employees and participate in the European cross-sectoral social dialogue.

We organise members in all branches of industry, public and private services and administrative departments. National confederations and unions as well as European trade union federations are our member organisations.


"We aim for a stronger knowledge-based Europe with real freedom of mobility and quality of working life."
