Workers Cause Party (Portuguese: Partido da Causa Operária, PCO) is a political party in Brazil. Its origins can be traced back to 1978. On that year, several Trotskyist militants who were not satisfied with the socialist international[clarification needed] united under the name Tendência Trotskista do Brasil (Brazilian Trotskyist Tendency, TTB). In 1980, this organization united itself with the newly formed Worker's Party (PT), becoming very involved in that decade's municipal and state elections, with several mayors and state representatives elected.
In 1990 and 1991, however, several TTB members were expelled from the PT due to their non-commitment to the Party's statutes. After that, the PCO was officially organized and founded in 1995.
Currently, the PCO maintains the same Trotskyist policies of its foundation.
The youth wing of the party is the Revolutionary Youth Alliance (AJR).
