Admin history
  • In 1833 local societies of cabinet makers formed a national union which was known as the Friendly Society of Operative Cabinet Makers or the Cabinet Makers' Union. From 1885 it was known as the Amalgamated Union of Cabinetmakers. The union merged with the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners in 1918 to form the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters, Cabinetmakers and Joiners.
