Challenges to ACFTU

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) is the world's largest trade union federation. It was formed on November 1, 2006 out of the merger of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions(ICFTU) and the World Confederation of Trade Labour

The International Confederation of Free Trade Workers states:

“the ACFTU is not an independent trade union organization and, therefore, cannot be regarded as an authentic voice of Chinese workers”
