Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
On 1 July 1971 the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers and Painters and the Amalgamated Union of Building Trade Workers amalgamated to form the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers, Painters and Builders. In December 1971 the new union changed its name to the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians.

All parts of the archive of the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians have the reference number MSS.78. They have then been subdivided by an abbreviation relating to each union's name, e.g. 78/AU refers to the papers of the Amalgamated Union of Building Trade Workers and 78/UC refers to the papers of UCATT itself.
The Modern Records Centre uses a classification scheme. For further details of the scheme, see http://www.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/mrc/mrcclass.shtml. It is compatible with ISAD(G): General International Standard Archival Description (2000).
