The Egyptian Trade Union Federation was, until 30 January 2011, the sole trade union federation in Egypt. It represents 2.5 million workers in 23 unions. It is affiliated with the International Confederation of Arab Trade Unions, and the Organization of African Trade Union Unity. On 30 January 2011, as part of the January 2011 protests, a meeting convened in Tahrir Square led to the formation of the Federation of Egyptian Trade Unions in response to the effective State control of the Egyptian Trade Union Federation. It is thought that this has signalled the end of State control of Trade Unionism in Egypt.
ETUF also maintains a worker's social association, and Education Association.

Famous quotes containing the words federation, union, egyptian and/or trade:
“Women realize that we are living in an ungoverned world. At heart we are all pacifists. We should love to talk it over with the war-makers, but they would not understand. Words are so inadequate, and we realize that the hatred must kill itself; so we give our men gladly, unselfishly, proudly, patriotically, since the world chooses to settle its disputes in the old barbarous way.”
—General Federation Of Womens Clubs (GFWC)
