Workers' Party (in Spanish: Partido de los Trabajadores) is a communist political party which operates in Spain. It was founded in 1979 through the merger of the Party of Labour of Spain (PTE) and the Workers Revolutionary Organisation (ORT).
The Catalan branch of PT was known as Partit dels Treballadors de Catalunya (Workers' Party of Catalonia). It published Yesca.
The old PT was short-lived. In 1980 a severe internal crisis erupted, and the party last contested elections in 1987.
In February 2009 it was refunded and reactivated, becoming an active political organization again.
