General Confederation of Liberal Trade Unions of Belgium

The General Confederation of Liberal Trade Unions of Belgium (ACLVB or CGSLB) is the smallest of Belgium's three major trade union federations. Unlike the other socialist and catholic federations, the ideology of the ACLVB-CGSLB is explicitly liberal. The federation traces its origins to 1891 and its membership numbered 295,600 in 2016.[1] It organises unions directly, without an occupationally-based union structure.
