Against the backdrop of a fledgling state striving for self-government and a people who were finding their footing in a brave new world, NTUC was born.

Join us as we unravel the defining moments of various eras that have led us to where and what we are today as a Labour Movement, and our contributions to the nation.

The effects of the decades continue to reverberate even till today and the lessons learnt then to evolve with the times is once again becoming relevant as we face a new technological transformation in our current age.

Along the journey, discover the birth of NTUC’s social enterprises, tripartism, and what the future holds for our workers.
