The monument in front of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria stands as a tribute to fallen workers and a symbol of support for the living. The inscription, “In memory of the dead workers, and for the life of the living,” underscores the significance of honoring those who sacrificed and advocating for the well-being of the labor force.
The Confederation itself, with its century-long trade union tradition, represents a formidable force in Bulgaria, serving as the largest non-governmental organization with a substantial membership base. Its recognition as nationally representative underscores its substantial impact and role in advocating for workers’ rights and interests.
Comprising numerous federations, trade unions, and associate members, the Confederation’s collective strength lies in its unity and collaboration with partner organizations, enabling it to effectively address the needs and concerns of workers across various sectors and industries.
