The Inter-Regional Trade Union Councils (IRTUCs) bring together the regional trade union organisations of national ETUC-affiliated confederations in cross-border regions. There are 46 IRTUCs, ranging from the northern tip of Sweden to southern Spain, from Ireland in the west to Hungary in the east.

The relevant national federations and the ETUC Secretariat work together to set up an IRTUC, which can form its own working groups to examine specific local issues. The ETUC also convenes the IRTUCs Coordinating Committee, which meets twice a year.
