The Labour Party (French: Parti travailliste, PT) is a New Caledonian political party established on 18 November 2007. It is radically pro-independence and backed by the trade union Union of Kanak Workers and the Exploited (Union syndicale des travailleurs kanaks et des exploités, USTKE). It is considered close to the French alterglobalization movement led by José Bové.
The PT supported two candidates in the French legislative election, 2007. Louis Kotra Uregei obtained 5.45% in New Caledonia's 1st constituency and François-Xavier Apock obtained 6.20% in New Caledonia's 2nd constituency.
