Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT)
Defined as an eminently working-class institution, UGT is organised according to trade and profession. In order to ensure cohesion, the utmost ideological and practical freedom is encouraged among its members, in so far as they strive towards the transformation of society according to the principles of social justice, equality and solidarity.
Since its legalisation as a trade union in 1977, it has been organised as a nested federation divided into territorial and national units.
UGT possesses several federal organs, elected by the General Assembly, in charge of carrying out the union’s policies and of ensuring the correct working of the organisation.
