The Party of Labour of Austria (German: Partei der Arbeit Österreichs, PdA) is a communist political party in Austria. PdA was founded on 12 October 2013 by the Communist Initiative, a Marxist-Leninist breakaway faction of the Communist Party of Austria (KPÖ), who were dissatisfied with the party's ideological orientation.[1]

Communist Initiative was an internal group in the Communist Party of Austria, founded in 2004 to promote Marxist-Leninist ideas in the party.[1] The Initiative broke with the KPÖ in 2005, citing a lack of internal democracy.[1]

PdA's founding conference was attended by delegates from the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), Hungarian Workers' Party (Munkáspárt), German Communist Party (DKP), Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE), and Communist Party of Turkey (TKP).[2] The party has particularly close fraternal relations with the KKE. The founding conference was also attended by Yahima Martínez, the ambassador to Austria from Cuba.[2]
