About Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT)

The Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (English: National Confederation of Labor; CNT) is a Spanish confederation of anarcho-syndicalist labor unions, which was long affiliated with the International Workers' Association (AIT). When working with the latter group it was also known as CNT-AIT.

Throughout its history, it has played a major role in the Spanish labor movement.
