Established in 1973, the ETUC is recognized by the EU, the Council of Europe and EFTA as the only representative crosssectoral trade union organization at a European level. It has grown steadily with a membership of 76 National Trade Union Confederations from 35 countries and 11 European Industry Federations with a total of 60m. members. The Congress meets every four years; the 10th Statutory Congress took place in Prague in May 2003.
