Admin history
  • Founded in 1860, the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners absorbed the Mersey Ship Joiners' Association in 1900 and the Associated Carpenters and Joiners' Society of Scotland in 1911. The society merged with the Amalgamated Union of Cabinetmakers in 1918 to form the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters, Cabinetmakers and Joiners. This society in turn merged with the General Union of Carpenters to form the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers in 1921.
