The Hong Kong and Kowloon Trades Union Council is a one of the three largest trade unions in Hong Kong together with the pro-Beijing Federation of Trade Unions (FTU) and pro-democracy Confederation of Trade Unions (CTU). It is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation.
HKTUC has been pro-Kuomintang, one of the main political parties of the Republic of China since its establishment in 1948 and has maintained a close relationship with the party. It was the biggest rival to the leftist trade unions FTU and was seen as a rightist union. The former leader of the union, Pang Chun-hoi was the Legislative Council member for the Labour constituency in 1985-1995, while another seat of the two was occupied by the FTU leader Tam Yiu-chung before the handover of Hong Kong in 1997.
