The Research Department collected documents and publications from a huge range of organisations, including many agreements made by the T&G itself. The archive contains files on every industry in which the union had membership, as well as a miscellaneous collection of publications on other aspects of the union's interests.
Prior written permission to consult almost all unpublished records in this archive is required. Researchers should apply to Mr Jim Mowatt, Director of Education at the successor union UNITE, Transport House, 128 Theobald's Road, Holborn, London WC1X 8TD, or by e-mail care of Joan Francis (Joan.Francis@unitetheunion.org). Publications may be consulted without permission. Unpublished material less than 20 years old is closed without special permission. Two items (MSS.126/TG/333/A/5/1 and MSS.126/TG/333/2/2) are closed for data protection reasons.
