Our Union has 12 branches and 4 regional representation offices in Turkey and all of these offices are working as subsidiaries of our Head Quarter in Istanbul.

There are more than 100 work places which are organized by our Union. The number of Trade Union Representatives in these work places are about 300 and these persons have been determined by election.

The highest decision mechanism in our Union is General Congress which is held once in every three years. The number of delegates is 262. These delegates elect 7 members for Executive Committee, 3 members for Auditing Committee, 5 members for Discipline Committee besides delegates for highest committees and determine the programs and conclusions for next term.

The are also several committees which work as “consultation committees”. Presidents Committee with 67 members, Representatives Committee with 300 members and Experts Committee can be mentioned as consultation committees.

Furthermore, there are several working groups and commissions which are structured in our Headquarters but the works in these groups target our branches and work places.

  • Working Groups: On young workers, women workers, technical staffs and handicapped workers

  • Commissions: On technological Developments, Organizing and Social State

The Commissions and Working Groups are formed with volunteer workers who take training continuous, research, produce projects and undertake to put projects into practice.

Another function of commissions is to bring proposals to the agenda of General Congress and to produce action programs.

These initiatives can be increased depending on last developments in our country and also in the world. But the purpose will be the same: to improve democracy in Trade Unions and to reach a more dynamic, more educated, more civilized and more developed Trade Union Movement.
