The Tunisian General Labour Union (French: Union Générale Tunisienne du Travail, UGTT) is a national trade union center in Tunisia. It has a membership of 517,000 and was founded January 20, 1946.
The UGTT is affiliated with the International Trade Union Confederation and the International Confederation of Arab Trade Unions.
The UGTT worked together with the Tunisian Human Rights League, the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers – collectively labelled the National Dialogue Quartet – to address the national discord following the Jasmine Revolution of 2011. The National Dialogue Quartet was announced as the laureate of the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize "for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia".
