What is GLI

The Global Labour Institute in Manchester is a not-for-profit organisation, established in 2010 in cooperation with the Global Labour Institute in Switzerland and the  Global Labor Institute at Cornell University (now Trade Unions for Energy Democracy), New York.

Together with the GLI Moscow (Praxis Centre),the GLI Paris (ReAct) and GLI Bogota, the six organisations form the GLI Network and share a commitment to democratic socialist principles.

We work closely with a range of global union federations, national trade unions, workers’ associations, development agencies, research institutions and workers’ education organisations.

GLI Manchester does not received direct funding support from institutions. It’s work is financed through donations and commissions from trade union organisations.

GLI Manchester currently coordinates the GLI Network.

GLI Manchester is constituted as a not-for-profit company (GLI Network Ltd) limited by guarantee under UK law.
