Find Trade Union expertise in Sierra Leone

The Sierra Leone Labour Congress is the primary trade union centre in the country. The trade union movement in Sierra Leone is one of the oldest in West Africa with the first fully fledged union being established in 1943 when the Sierra Leone Trade Union Council (TUC) was formed. In 1946 the Sierra Leone Council of Labour replaced the TUC, and in May 1966 the Sierra Leone Labour Congress (SLLC) replaced its predecessors as the central body to which all unions belong. As early as the mid-1980s, the SLLC had over a dozen constituent unions totalling about 40,000 members, but the civil war placed strain on the working of the union. However since peace has been established, and stability has returned, the Sierra Leone Labour Congress has taken progressive steps to re-establish its key position as the national trade union centre.
