The Solomon Islands Council of Trade Unions (SICTU) is a national trade union center in the Solomon Islands.

It was created in the 1970s by the Solomon Islands General Workers' Union and had membership of over 90% of SI TUs. After the independence of SI, in 1978 the name was changed to the Solomon Islands National Union of Workers, a name that is still in some use.

In the 1980s SICTU set up the Solomon Islands Labour Party.
