What is the ITF Congress?
The four yearly Congress is the ITF’s supreme decision making event, at which delegates from its affiliated trade unions are able to vote to determine the course the ITF will take until the next Congress. It elects the ITF’s Executive Board, President, Vice Presidents and General Secretary; approves – or not – the organisation’s last four years’ work; and sets the agenda for the next four years. It also approves reports from the ITF’s industrial sections, which meet during the congress. The event is open to delegates, observers, press and public.
