Say Yes to a Unified and Solidarity-driven Europe

Solidarity between us; solidarity with the world of work around us; unity in the face of the employer; collectively support the European idea.

Welcome to
Union Syndicale Fédérale

Union Syndicale Fédérale, the leading Interntational and European civil service trade union, defends civil servants and agents from the European institutions and international organisations.



Solidarity is in our DNA and is our business. Solid unity has allowed us to achieve significant positive changes over the years ever since USF has been created. That is why we are belonging to the general workers’ movement in Europe and the World, through membership in EPSU and PSI.
