The trade union organization, associating civilian and service employees, is an important means of communication between the employees and management of the Customs Administration. Through elected representatives from all the units and workplaces, it supervises compliance with the principles contained in the Collective Agreement. In addition to employee-related matters and employee relations, the trade union organization also expends considerable efforts on the pastimes and cultural and sports activities for employees of the Customs Administration outside of working hours.
Every year, the employees and members of the customs administration can also compare their performance in individual sports disciplines and many competitions and championships. Some sports competitions have a tradition stretching back many years, particularly the summer running and cycling competitions, and the championships of the Customs Administration
in foot-tennis, volleyball, tennis and football. The winners can then enter international competitions.

Throughout the whole year the Customs Administration offers recreational trips for its employees and their family members which they can take in the Czech Republic as well as abroad. It also organizes summer camps for the children of its employees.
