Administrative / Biographical History

The Amalgamated Slaters, Tilers and Roofing Operatives Society was formed out of the amalgamation of some small craft societies in the nineteenth century who operated a collective bargaining system with employers. Copies of rules of the Society can be found in the pamphlet collections of the main holdings of the Brynmor Jones Library. In the twentieth century the Society had connections with the large amalgamated building workers' unions and the collection contains circulars and correspondence from related organisations such as the National Federation of Building Trades Operatives.
