List of federations of trade unions

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 organisations formed by trade unions which operate, in most cases, at the national level. The organisations listed in the world-wide section are industry/sectoral-specific (ie the GUFs) and international organisations representing national trade union centres (eg ITUC).
