Global Labour University

The Global Labour University (GLU) network is an international initiative by trade unions and universities offering postgraduate training for mid-career trade unionists, officials in labour service organisations, and related areas.

The GLU site at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, is the only such site in Africa. Since 2007, it has offered a coursework Masters programme (available both full-time and part-time); from 2012, it also offered an Honours degree. These degrees are in the field of Labour Policy and Globalisation.

The programmes are implemented in cooperation with the wider GLU network by the following organisations:
