Nepal Trade Union Congress (NTUC): The “Nepal Labour Union” of 1947 AD, initiated under the leadership of Girija Prasad Koirala was renamed “Nepal Trade Union Congress” after the reinstatement of democracy in 1990 AD.
The NTUC has remained committed to the norm of nationality, institutional democracy and socialism. On the basis of our ideology of Democratic Socialism, NTUC has been advocating for representation at the policy formulation level to ensure social justice for all workers. In order to protect fundamental rights of workers and secure their rights to choose their union, right to strike, right to organize and right to collective bargaining, the two prominent Unions of Nepal; NTUC and DECONT united in 2007 AD to act together for justice, equality and freedom.
NTUC was formed to secure fundamental economic, social benefits and dignity to members. Since its inception, it has campaigned for a fair deal at work and for social justice at home and abroad. Collective strength offers insurance to members to fight against irrational, arbitrary and illegal actions of employers. With its commitment to the democratic movement of the state, NTUC provides a platform for its members to come together and share their feelings, exchange notes and fight the employer quite effectively whenever the employer goes off the track.
