The Congress is the supreme authority of the ETUC. It meets once every four years, the last meeting taking place in Seville in 2007. The ETUC Congress is composed of delegates from the affiliated organisations in proportion to their membership. The Congress elects the members of the Executive Committee, the President, the General Secretary and the two Deputy General Secretaries. The General Secretary Bernadette Ségol is the head and the spokesperson of the Confederation. The President Ignacio Fernández Toxo (CC OO - Spain) chairs the ETUC’s governing bodies.
