The Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine (known by its Ukrainian acronym, FPU) is an all-Ukrainian voluntary association of trade unions that represents national-level industrial sector un in the Crimea and the city of Kyiv and it surrounding region. It is the largest trade union confederation in Ukraine, with more than 10 million members. As of September 1, 2006, 44 national trade unions and 26 regional trade unions belonged to the FPU.

The Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Ukraine was established after Ukraine became independent on October 6, 1990. The Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Ukraine was a successor of the Ukrainian Republican Council of Trade Unions. The declaration creating the FPU was signed by 25 national and 24 regional trade unions.

In November 1992, at its Second (Extraordinary) Congress, the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Ukraine was renamed the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine.

The aim of the FPU is to express and represent the interests and protect the rights of its member organisations, coordinate their collective actions, promote unity in the trade union movement, represent and protect labour and the socio-economic rights and interests of trade union members before state and local authorities, represent the interests of members in their relationship with employers and their organisations, and to represent its members in interactions with other citizens’ associations.

The FPU main tasks are protection of labour, socio-economic rights and interests of trade union members; social protection of trade union members and their families; legal protection of trade union members; strengthening of FPU influence on political life and in the formation of the civil society; improvement of the social contract with other trade unions, employers, and the state; cooperating with other trade unions and their associations; building and maintaining the equality of rights and opportunities for men and women; strengthening the FPU as a democratic trade union; and strengthening and widening FPU international relations.

At the international level, the FPU is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation and General Confederation of Trade Unions.

The Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine is participating in the United Nations Global Compact.
