13. Specific groups of interest

The ETUC makes special arrangements to consult and represent the interests of young people and women, through its Youth Committee and Women’s Committee, the implementation of Equality Plans, and a policy of ‘mainstreaming’ gender equality into all ETUC decisions and activities.

The ETUC also convenes the ITUCs Coordinating Committee, which comprises the Presidents of the ITUCs and contributes to formulating ETUC policies, especially those relating to the welfare of workers in border regions.
