Administrative / Biographical History

The National Transport Workers' Federation was founded in 1910 to bring together all unions with members in docks, road haulage and passenger transport, to discuss problems and co-ordinate action. It was largely superseded by the Transport and General Workers' Union in 1922, but continued to exist for some years, although the T&G withdrew from membership in 1923.
