The Brussels Office of the
Swedish Trade Unions

The Brussels Office of the Swedish Trade Unions was established in 1989 and is jointly run by The Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO), The Swedish Confederation for Professional Employees (TCO) and The Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations (Saco). Together they represent around 3.4 million workers.

The main task of the office is to cover EU politics in general and to support the work of LO, TCO and Saco and their affiliates to shape and influence EU policies that are of particular interest to workers.

EU decision making is important to workers as it affects their daily life. Trade unions must therefore keep track of the development of new initiatives and laws.

The Brussels Office provides information concerning proposals for legislation by the European Commission, opinions of the European Parliament and resolutions adopted by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), primarily concerning economic policy, labour market policy and social policy.

The Brussels Office has an extensive network. We play an important role as a link between Sweden and the EU. We assist LO, TCO, Saco and their affiliates with contacts and information in Brussels.

In addition, the Brussels Office receives many visitors and draws up programmes for trade union groups that want to learn more about the EU and visit the institutions in Brussels. The office welcomes about 1500 visitors every year.

Also politicians, civil servants, journalists, researchers and others receive information from the Brussels Office regarding European policies and analysis from a trade union perspective.
