European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE)

Mission Statement

The European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE) represents 127 education trade unions in 51 countries. In total numbers, ETUCE represents 11 million members all over Europe.

ETUCE is composed of national education trade unions in general education - early childhood education, primary education, secondary education, vocational education and training as well as higher education and research.

ETUCE is the sectoral social partner in education at European level and a defender of teachers', academics' and other education personnel's interests toward the EU Commission and other EU institutions.

ETUCE was established in 1977. Following the adoption of a new structure by the Extraordinary Conference / General Assembly, in 2010, ETUCE became an integrated part of Education International (EI). ETUCE is now the EI Regional Structure in Europe.

ETUCE is also a European Trade Union Federation of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC).

Our campaign pledge

Supporting a responsible and aware use of digital technology to promoting safe and healthy educational environments.



European Director

Ensuring the safety and health of teachers in the digital age is a key mission of education trade unions. However, this also presents a great challenge for the future of education: the attractiveness of the teaching profession, as well as the fairness, quality, and democracy of our education systems, are all at stake.
