EATUC

The East African Trade Union Con­fed­er­a­tion (EATUC) was estab­lished in 1988 and cur­rently is com­posed of the Cen­tral Organ­i­sa­tion of Trade Unions (COTU-K) — Kenya, the National Organ­i­sa­tion of Trade Unions (NOTU) — Uganda, Zanz­ibar Trade Union Con­gress (ZATUC) and the Trade Union Con­gress of Tan­za­nia (TUCTA). In July 2007, EATUC mem­ber­ship was extended to the National Trade Union Fed­er­a­tions from Burundi (COSYBU) and Rwanda (CESTRAR). EATUC has an observer sta­tus within the EAC structures.

EATUC ‘s main goal is to intergrate workrers’ interrests and efforts in the East African region with a view to develop a common approach towards enhancing social and economic justice through the participation of workers’ organizations at all levels of the regional integration.
