Trade Union Friends of Israeli (TUFI) was established to promote solidarity and strong links between British, Israeli and Palestinian trade unions. TUFI support a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine that delivers peace, economic progress, security and justice for both nations.

Through delegations and events, TUFI works to encourage the British trade union movement to play a positive role in improving the lives of both Palestinians and Israelis. We engage progressive forces advocating peace, social justice and human rights, and highlight the diversity of Israeli society, striving for full equality regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender.

Delegations to Israel & Palestine

TUFI leads large delegations of trade unionists to Israel and Palestine annually, helping trade unionists gain a better understanding of the issues.

"A thought–provoking and well-organised trip, one which highlighted the needs of workers on both sides and vividly demonstrated the significance of a peaceful solution and its importance for both Palestinian and Israeli trade unions. If you get the opportunity to go, then do it!"

Rob Sneddon
