The Working Committee comprises of the principal officer bearers who are the President, Deputy President, Secretary General, Deputy Secretary General, Finance Secretary, Deputy Finance Secretary and 11 Vice Presidents. Out of the 11, 6 Vice-Presidents are elected representing private sector unions, 3 representing public sector unions and 3 representing statutory bodies. The chairperson of the Women’s and Youth wings, who are elected at the women’s and youth delegates conference respectively, are also recognised as Vice-Presidents and sit on the Working Committee. The Working Committee implements the decisions of the Delegates Conference and the General Council.
