The decisions of the Executive Committee are carried out by TCO’s Central Office. The Executive Committee consists of a Chairperson and 10 members. This means that not all of the affiliated unions are represented on the Committee.
In order to ensure that all the unions can nevertheless participate in important discussions, at least four Presidential Conferences are held each year. These Presidential Conferences act as advisory bodies to the Executive Committee.
There are TCO Councils throughout Sweden in which the unions co-operate on regional and local issues, above all in the labour market and educational fields. A TCO Council may, for example, cover a municipality or a county. Students in higher education are also entitled to join a trade union. The unions affiliated to TCO together have over 80 000 student members.
TCO also issues a magazine called Studentliv (Student Life). The TCO unions have over 80 000 student members.
