The Unique Workers' Center (Portuguese: "Central Única dos Trabalhadores", CUT) is the chief union federation in Brazil. The CUT was formed on August 28, 1983, and (along with the Workers' Party and the Landless Workers' Movement) it was one of the key organizations to challenge the military dictatorship of 1964–1985.

Today it is the largest and most important labor federation in Brazil, though it continues to face obstacles because of corporatist laws that curb workers' rights to organize. The CUT generally supports a democratic-socialist political ideology and is close to the Workers' Party (PT).

In March 2004, dissidents opposed to the government of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva formed "Coordenação Nacional de Lutas" ("National Coordination of Struggles", (CONLUTAS). CONLUTAS represents between 30 and 40 percent of the CUT leadership, and it is closer to the United Socialist Workers´ Party (PSTU) and the Socialism and Freedom Party (P-SOL) than the PT.
