The Scottish Iron Moulders' Union was formed in 1831, as a result of a takeover of the Scottish Iron Moulders Friendly Society by James Dunn. In 1869 the name was changed to the Associated Iron Moulders of Scotland. In 1875 it affiliated to the Trades Union Congress. It amalgamated in 1920 with the Friendly Society of Iron Founders of England, Ireland and Wales and the Amalgamated Society of Coremakers of Great Britain and Ireland to form the National Union of Foundry Workers.
