The Technical Engineering and Electrical Union (TEEU) is an engineering union in Ireland[1]

The union represents a broad range of workers throughout industry and public service. It includes craftworkers, technicians, skilled operatives, general workers, technical, administration and supervisory staff.

The TEEU is the largest engineering union in Ireland and the second largest in manufacturing representing up to 40,000 workers.

The TEEU came into existence in 1992 arising from an amalgamation between the Electrical Trades Union and the National Engineering & Electrical Trades Union. Both unions can trace their origins to 1920 when union activists in British based unions believed Irish workers needed autonomous representation in the emerging Irish state.

In 2016, members of the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians based in the Republic of Ireland transferred to the TEEU.[2]
