National Union of Dyers, Bleachers and Textile Workers

National Union of Dyers, Bleachers and Textile Workers

The National Union of Dyers, Bleachers and Textile Workers (NUDBTW) was a trade union in the United Kingdom.

The union was founded in 1936 with the merger of the National Union of Textile Workers, the Amalgamated Society of Dyers, Finishers and Kindred Trades, and the Operative Dyers, Bleachers and Finishers Association.[1] In 1980, the Yorkshire Society of Textile Craftsmen and the Huddersfield and District Healders and Twisters Trade and Friendly Society both merged into the NUDBTW.[2]

It merged with the Transport and General Workers' Union in 1982.[3]
