The Progressive Valdostan Union (French: Union Valdôtaine Progressiste, UVP) is a centre-left political party active in the Aosta Valley, Italy.

The party emerged in January 2013 as a split from the Valdostan Union (UV), similarly to what had happened forty years before with the historical UVP. Over the years the UV had become more acquainted with the centre-right and this caused the exit of three regional councillors (Luciano Caveri, Laurent Viérin and Andrea Rosset), who launched the UVP on 4 January 2013.[2] In the 2013 general election Vierin missed the election to the Chamber of Deputies for less than 200 votes.[3]

In the 2013 regional election UVP obtained 19.2% of the vote and 7 seats in the Regional Council.[4][5]
