The National Labour Party (Portuguese: Partido Trabalhista Nacional, PTN) is a tiny populist-centrist Brazilian political party originally founded in 1945.

It was founded by dissidents from the Brazilian Labor Party (PTB) in 1945, and supported the winning candidacy of Jânio Quadros in 1960. It was abolished by the military regime in 1965.

It was re-founded in 1995, led again by dissidents of the PTB. It exists to this day, but has never achieved significant electoral success in any state.
