The Central Committee of Tallinn Trade Unions (Estonian: Tallinna Ametiühisuste Kesknõukogu, TAK) was a political organisation in Estonia.

History[edit]

The party was a front for the Communist Party,[1] which had used umbrella organisations to participate in politics since being banned in 1918.[2] In the 1920 parliamentary elections the party won five seats in the Riigikogu.[3] It did not contest the 1923 elections, in which the Communist Party put forward the Workers' United Front instead.[1]
