Welcome to Britain Israel Trade Union Dialogue

Working for peace and trade union solidarity


Our Mission

Britain Israel Trade Union Dialouge (BITUD) was established to promote solidarity and strong links between British, Israeli and Palestinian trade unions. BITUD supports a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine that delivers peace, economic progress, security and justice for both nations.


Through delegations and events, BITUD works to encourage the British trade union movement to play a positive role in improving the lives of both Palestinians and Israelis. We engage progressive forces advocating peace, social justice and human rights, and highlight the diversity of Israeli society, striving for full equality regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender.
