Education International works closely with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the Global Union Federations, and the Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) to the OECD. Those Global Union organisations established the Council of Global Unions, which is in keeping with the general principles in the EI Constitution (Article 3). Global Unions work together with a shared commitment to the ideas and principles of the trade union movement. They share a common determination to organize, to defend democracy, human rights and labour standards everywhere, and to promote the growth of trade unions for the benefit of all working men and women and their families.
