The National Workers Union is a general trade union in Jamaica. The National Workers Union was founded on 2 April 1952 emerging as a result of a split within the Trade Union Congress and factional alignments within the People's National Party (PNP). The NWU became the main trade union of the PNP.[1] The NWU was a founding member of the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions.
