Introduction to the LO/FTF Council

The LO/FTF Council is the Danish trade union movement's organisation for international development cooperation.

It was established in 1987 by the two largest Danish confederations, the Danish Federation of Trade Unions (LO) and the Danish Confederation of Salaried Employees and Civil Servants (FTF), now merged to the Danish Trade Union Confederation (FH). The LO/FTF Council does not have individual members but the unions affiliated to FH have more than 1,400,000 members. The support from members is guaranteed through the well-established democratic structures in the Danish trade union movement.

The LO/FTF Council contributes to the creation of fair democratic, social and economic conditions for all in developing countries through the development of sustainable labour markets with social dialogue, tripartite institutions and a democratic and well-functioning trade union movement.
