The Solidarity Center in Ethiopia supports the efforts of the Confederation of Ethiopian Trade Unions (CETU) to protect civil and labor rights, reduce economic inequality and support working people’s participation in the country’s process of rebuilding its economic and legislative frameworks.

As one of Ethiopia’s largest multi-ethnic and multi-religious civil society organizations, with 570,000 members in 1,700 unions, CETU is uniquely positioned to represent workers.
