The French Confederation of Christian Workers (French: Confédération française des travailleurs chrétiens, CFTC) is one of the five major French confederation of trade unions, belonging to the social Christian tradition.
It was founded in 1919 as the Trade Union of Employees of Industry and Commerce under the inspiration of the Venerable Brother Exupérien Mas, F.S.C., with the goal of safeguarding the material as well as the spiritual interests of its members. In 1964, the union split, a majority founding the French Democratic Confederation of Labour (CFDT), a secular trade-union.
The CFTC won 8.69% of the vote in the employee's college during the 2008 professional elections. This result, however, is below the CFTC's 9.65% result in 2002, its best showing to date.
