United and Alternative Left (Catalan: Esquerra Unida i Alternativa, EUiA) is a political party from Catalonia, Spain. EUiA has 4000 members and it is the Catalan correspondent of the Spain-wide United Left (Izquierda Unida).

It was formed in 1998 as a schism from Iniciativa per Catalunya (IpC). It comprises an alliance of Party of the Catalonian Communists, PSUC viu, POR, PRT-IR, PASOC, CEA and CLI. After competing in a series of elections with their former colleagues at Iniciativa, the two parties agreed to run together as an electoral coalition. Currently, 2 out of the 12 MPs at the regional Parliament of Catalonia adscribed to the IpC-EUiA group are members of this latter party.
