The European Federation of Building and Woodworkers (EFBWW) is the European industry federation for the construction industry, the building materials industry, the wood and furniture industry and the forestry industry. It unites 50 organisations in 18 countries with a total of 2.3 million individuals.
The EFBWW is a member organisation of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC). The chief function of the Federation is to represent its members in Europe and to support them in the defence of employees' interests and rights in the respective sectors of industry. The Federation encompasses two standing committees: one for the construction sector, the other for the wood, furniture and forestry sectors.
Following the 1995 General Assembly, a Health and Safety Working Party was set up, underlining the importance of health and safety issues. The Standing Committees follow developments in their respective sectors and submit EFBWW policy proposals to the Executive Committee. EFBWW activities are based on decisions taken and an action programme adopted at the General Assembly, which is held every four years.
Within the project, the EFBWW represents the interests of employees in the construction sector at European level, and offers to assist in valorisation of the project within the dialogue between the European social partners.
