Together in the union

For Quality Education

The campaign Together in the Union - #ForQualityEducation is led by education trade unions across Europe who are members of ETUCE and stand together to shape quality education for the benefit of all teachers, education personnel, children, and learners. By engaging in the campaign, you will be part of a community of teachers and education professionals all over Europe who seek to develop shared alternatives to what education should look like.

Campaign Resources YOUR TURN! Teachers for Trade Union Renewal Trade Union Renewal Policy

ETUCE is a federation of 127 education trade unions in 51 countries, representing in total 11 million teachers and other education personnel all over Europe. Together, we promote quality education as a fundamental right and a public good.

Education should not pay the cost of the crisis. Funding cuts, the dominance of market mechanisms in education policy, attacks to the role and status of teachers and their unions should not frame the working lives of educators. Individualism and distrust in human solidarity should not break unity and trust in collective action.

Our union is the means to advance our rights, and to further our profession. Our union is a force for fairness and a power for progress. This is why it is vital that ETUCE and all education trade unions across Europe work to articulate alternatives. Because together, we can achieve change. Together, we can have a voice, fight for our rights and shape education. Together, we can make a difference.
