Global union federation

A global union federation (GUF) is an international federation of national trade unions organising in specific industry sectors or occupational groups. A GUF used to be known as an international trade secretariat (ITS).[1]

Many unions are members of one or more global union federations, relevant to the sectors where they have their members. Individual unions may also be affiliated to a national trade union center, which in turn can be affiliated to the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) or the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU).
