Description
  • The Cycle Trade Union was set up on the initiative of the BCMCMTU in 1914 to maintain the "security of selling value" (i.e. to enforce retail price maintenance), to control auction sales and advertising, and generally to regulate the cycle trade. It was wound up in 1962 following the passage of legislation outlawing retail price maintenance.
