The main aim of the ITUC Equality Department is to work to ensure that people can live and work in conditions characterised by equality, dignity and justice.

Promoting respect of diversity at work and in society and implementing effective measures to combat racism and xenophobia, in particular at the workplace and in the labour market, are priorities for the ITUC.

Young men and women workers are another vulnerable group, despite the fact that they represent our world’s present and its future. Addressing their concerns and expectations effectively and ensuring their full involvement in trade unions are essential tasks.
