Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The London Carmen's Trade Union (LCTU) was founded in 1888 to represent the drivers of heavy goods vehicles. It was renamed the National Union of Vehicle Workers (NUVW) in 1913. At some point, probably c.1920, it absorbed the Association of Dairymen's Assistants, which represented milkmen. On 1 January 1922 it was one of the fourteen unions which came together to form the Transport and General Workers' Union.
