Trade Union Congress of the Philippines
|Full name||Trade Union Congress of the Philippines|
|Key people||Ernesto Herrera, president|
|Office location||Quezon City, the Philippines|
TUCP has previously claimed a membership of 1 million members, but ICTUR casts some question on the veracity of the number. Nonetheless the union is the largest in the country and represents both trade union workers and members it recruits in all industries, including from the informal sector, drivers, urban poor, youth groups, cooperatives, alliances, coalitions and other civil society groups. In 2009, a large organization of migrant workers, the OFW Family Club, affiliated with TUCP.
Membership in TUCP declined in the 1990s, and the union is involved in the more turbulent labour sectors such as the export processing zones, where unions face considerable employer and official hostility.
TUCP is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation and its Asia Pacific organization, and the ASEAN Trade Union Council (ATUC).
TUCP has set up a party-list, Trade Union Congress Party, to contest parliamentary elections.
