The Pakistan Workers' Federation (PWF) is an umbrella organization of national trade unions in Pakistan. Determined to work together to promote and protect their rights by creating “Pakistan Workers Federation” initially through merger of three national trade union centers of Pakistan, namely: All Pakistan Federation of Trade Unions (APFTU), All Pakistan Federation of Labour (APFOL) and Pakistan National Federation of Trade Unions (PNFTU).

These Federations would stand dissolved and cease to exist from the date when National Executive Board of the newly formed Pakistan Workers Federation would be established. As a second step, work for the eventual 'one united voice' of working men and women of Pakistan by seeking the merger of other non affiliated unions and federations with the PWF.


Members of the PWF include:
