The International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE), AFL-CIO & CLC is a North American labor union representing various professional, technical, and administrative support workers in the United States and Canada, in both the public and private sectors.

Its roots may be traced back to the International Federation of Draftsmen’s Unions, a craft union for shipyard engineers and draftsmen, chartered by the American Federation of Labor in 1918, and expanding its jurisdiction in 1919 to become the International Federation of Technical Engineers, Architects, and Draftsman's Union.[1]
