The Plenario Intersindical de Trabajadores – Convención Nacional de Trabajadores (PIT-CNT) is a national trade union center in Uruguay. It was founded in 1964 as the Convención Nacional de Trabajadores (CNT), but was dissolved, and 18 council members "disappeared", in the wake of a general strike in 1973. Ten years later in 1983 activities resumed under name Plenario Intersindical de Trabajadores (PIT). This too was banned after a general strike in 1985. The union was then restored under the present name in March, 1985.
