The union continues to intensify effort on unionisation in both the formal and informal sectors. Organising and recruitment remains the bedrock of the union. This is also taking a new dimension as trade unions strengthen informal sector organising. The union is making steady strides in organising all categories of workers in the textile and allied sector. The first set of self employed tailors were organised in Lagos in 2005. Since then several branches have been consummated in Benue State, Kaduna State, Edo State among others.
