The National Workers' Union of Mali (UNTM) is a national trade union center in Mali.

The UNTM, formed in 1963, initially was closely supervied by the Keïta and Traoré regimes. However, in the 1990s the relationship between the union and government deteriorated. In 1997 the police occupied the UNTM headquarters and sealed the general secretary's office.

The UNTM is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation.
