The Confederazione Generale Italiana del Lavoro (CGIL) is a national trade union confederation in Italy . It was founded on June 3, 1944 through the unification of socialists , communists and Christian democrats , laid down in the so-called Treaty of Rome (patto di Roma) .

With the rapprochement between the CGIL and the Communist Party of Italy , the Christian Democrats separated in 1948 and founded their own trade union federation, the CISL . In 1950 the Social Democrats and laicists also separated and founded the UIL . Until its dissolution or renaming in 1991/1992, the CGIL was close to the Communist Party and the Socialist Party and has since been part of today's left-wing party spectrum.

The CGIL is a member of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC). In the membership list of the IGB, membership is given as 5,616,210 (as of November 2017).

The AGB / CGIL (General Trade Union Federation) is the bilingual South Tyrolean branch of the CGIL.
