LO/FTF Council

The LO/FTF Council is the Danish trade union council for international development co-operation. It was established, under a slightly different name, in 1987 by the two largest Danish confederations, the Danish Federation of Trade Unions (LO) and the Danish Confederation of Salaried Employees and Civil Servants (FTF).

The objectives of the international work of the LO/FTF Council are: to support democratic development of the trade union movements in Africa, Asia and Latin America and to contribute to democratic development in the societies in which the unions operate

The international work of the Danish trade union movement is built on the fundamental conviction that a democratic trade union movement contributes to the democratic development of society when the trade union movement influences political, social and economic decisions affecting the whole society, through negotiation and dialogue
