Fórsa Trade Union
About Fórsa Trade Union
Fórsa is Ireland’s newest trade union with over 80,000 members.
The union was formed on 2nd January 2018 after the members of IMPACT, the Civil, Public and Services Union (CPSU), and the Public Service Executive Union (PSEU) voted overwhelmingly to amalgamate the three organisations.
Fórsa represents members in the public service, as well as the commercial sector, state agencies, some private companies and in the community and voluntary sector.
Fórsa is the second largest union on the island of Ireland and by far the largest trade union voice in the Irish civil and public service.
Fórsa is the Gaelic word meaning a ‘force’ or body of people, as well as meaning ‘leverage’.
Fórsa boasts a rich legacy through each of its founding unions.
