Mission Statement
The European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE) is the teachers' social partner at European level and a defender of teachers' interests to the European Commission. ETUCE was established in 1977.

In November 2010 a new European Structure was adopted by the Extraordinary Conference / General Assembly, at which ETUCE became an integrated part of Education International, EI. ETUCE is now the EI Regional Structure in Europe.

Following the new structure, ETUCE represents 132 Education Trade unions in 51 countries. In total numbers, ETUCE represents 11 million members all over Europe.

ETUCE is composed of national trade unions of teachers and other staff in general education - early childhood education, primary education, secondary education, vocational education and training as well as higher education and research. ETUCE is also a European Trade Union Federation of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC).
Our campaign pledge
Education trade unions have always put occupational health and safety as a key priority of their actions at national and European level. The current campaign is a very valuable opportunity for education trade unions to share experiences and knowledge with and learn from other sectors and experts. At European level, we plan on actively involving our Member organisations and partners in campaign activities in view to raise awareness and deepen discussions on the topic of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace via our various communication channels.

European Director
ETUCE has been an official partner of the healthy workplaces campaign since its inception. We are committed to making the key role of education trade unions visible in promoting decent workplaces in the education sector for a healthier working life, and in particular in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has had on the health and safety of education personnel.

We are looking forward to raising awareness on the current edition of the campaign among our member organisations and bring the expertise of education trade unions to the discussions held in the frame of this campaign.
