This is a list of federations of trade unions. Those federations listed under each country are also known as national trade union centres and are organizations formed by trade unions which operate, in most cases, at the national level. The organizations listed in the world-wide section are industry/sectoral-specific (ie the GUFs) and international organizations representing national trade union centres (eg ITUC).
