In Georgia, the Solidarity Center works with trade unions to improve their ability to engage effectively with employers and government representatives.

The Solidarity Center partners with the Georgian Trade Union Confederation (GTUC), the largest member-based democratic organization in Georgia, which advocates for enforcement of worker rights and economic, political and industrial policies that benefit workers and civil society and create a strong middle class to ensure economic stability and democracy.

Solidarity Center programs in Georgia support legislative research and training to advance union rights and gender equality, assist unions in building their capacity to represent all workers and educate workers on principles of democratic trade unionism.
