Who We Are Our and Our Mission
WHO WE ARE
We are workers who join together so that we can have the power which comes from solidarity & unity. We are people who share a common goal -- to negotiate with our employers from a position of strength. We are individuals who know that you have to belong to be strong.
Wages, raises, health insurance, benefits, vacation days -- even the rules our members work under -- are the direct result of contracts that APFUTU has negotiated with employers.
We also provide field services; legal services and communication services to make sure those contracts are enforced.
All Pakistan Federation of United Trade Unions (APFUTU )is proud that we are a grassroots union where members themselves elect their officers and where only members can serve on negotiating teams and vote to ratify contracts.
APFUTU also has a respected Non-political action network to represent your interests before elected officials.. we belong to the most powerful national Union center in the PAKISTAN.
To our members we say:
Get involved. The more involved you are, the more rewarding your membership will be.
As working men and women, everyone and everywhere, we are our greatest resource.
We organize and represent workers to ensure our voice is heard, our place at the table is kept and the Pakistani dream is ours in the 21st Century.
As a labor union federation, we hold these values as our working principles:
We are honest with ourselves and each other.
Every group, every idea is welcomed.
We encourage and expect full participation in all organization matters.
We respect each other and honor our differences.
We celebrate our diversity and use it to strengthen us.
We listen and provide for open communication across all parts of our organization and in all directions.
We are accountable for our actions and decisions.
We conduct our business in a fiscally sound manner.
As a labor union center at national level, we are committed to union democracy and we follow these values with integrity.
