GFTU Win:Win Callaborative Working


The GFTU plays a vital role in making unions and the movement stronger; we assist new unions to form and grow through training and practical support and advice. We help established unions to be more sustainable and support them in overcoming challenges. There is no issue too big or small that we couldn’t be asked to consider, the GFTU remains keen to help affiliated unions out at any level. The case for unions affiliating to the GFTU is a compelling one and historically GFTU affiliates have never ‘been out of pocket’ when they join. Our many benefits and services far exceed the cost of affiliation. This is because the GFTU has subsidised its support work heavily. We can continue to do so if affiliated unions all buy into a co-operative way of working that generates savings and some income for affiliates and our educational trust alike. The more we do together the more the GFTU can provide.

We help affiliates to be more effective and

sustainable. We help them save money, get the very best advice, support and

products, and reduce operational costs and pressures. The more

our support services are used, the more we can put into our education trust to spend on education which is mostly provided free of charge to affiliates. This co-operative way of working was how our movement was born.
