Poor Law Workers' Trade Union
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Poor Law Workers' Trade Union was established on 7 Dec 1918. Amalgamation negotiations with the National Asylum Workers' Union in the early 1920s came to nothing and were followed by a change of name in 1922 to the Poor Law Officers' Union. Following the Local Government Act of 1929, the Union became the National Union of County Officers. Following the recommendations of the Beveridge Report (1942), the NUCO became the Hospitals and Welfare Services Union. This amalgamated with the Mental Hospital and Institutional Workers' Union in 1946 to form the Confederation of Health Service Employees.
