LO is a member of the Nordic Council of Trade Unions (NFS), the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).
Acting from a wish to strengthen the trade union movement in the developing countries and in Central- and Eastern Europe, LO contributes bilaterally or in cooperation with the ITUC and the ETUC to the efforts to ensure that our cooperation partners can look after their interests at the national and at the international level.
In addition, LO is a member of the Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) to the OECD and plays an active part in the activities of the International Labour Organisation both through the work in the Danish ILO Committee, which is a tripartite body, as well as by participating in the annual Labour Conferences.
At the Nordic level, we also cooperate with the other Nordic trade union movements and social democratic parties in SAMAK, the Labour Movement's Nordic Cooperative Committee.
A very important aspect of our international work is LO's bilateral contacts to trade union movements in a number of countries in Asia, Africa, Latin Ameria, Eastern and Central Europe and in the OECD countries.
LO is an initiator of a wide range of development projects in the developing countries. This assistance is administered through the Danish Trade Union Council for International Development Cooperation, also called the LO/FTF Council since it was set up in cooperation with the FTF (Confederation of Salaried Employees and Civil Servants in Denmark).
LO has recently prepared a development policy which can be downloaded following this link:
