About IMF

The International Metalworkers' Federation (IMF) represents the collective interests of 25 million metalworkers from more than 200 unions in 100 countries. The IMF is a federation of national metalworkers' unions - a ‘union of unions' at world level, and one of the oldest Global Union Federations.

The IMF aims to improve metalworkers' wages, working and living conditions and defends the rights of metalworkers at a global level.

To achieve this, we work with national affiliates with the aim of building a strong international labour movement.

Worldwide activities of the IMF are co-ordinated from our headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland together with our network of regional offices.
