The Chinese Federation of Labour (CFL) is a national trade union center in Taiwan. It was founded in 1948 in mainland China, and until the government recognition of the Taiwan Confederation of Trade Unions in 2000, was the sole official labour confederation in Taiwan.

The CFL is closely linked with the Kuomintang (KMT), and has experienced some difficulties with the government since the KMT lost power.

The CFL is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation.
