The members of the TCO unions are professional employees in working life. It is their common interests and conditions, as expressed by the affiliated unions, that form the basis of TCO’s operations. TCO is independent in party-political terms.
TCO’s basic tasks are, together with the affiliated unions, to:
• Organise and recruit professional and qualified people in working life.
• Promote and defend the needs and interests of the members in the social debate and the political decision-making process.
• Safeguard trade union rights and freedoms.
• Represent the affiliated unions in international trade union work.
