Historical Note

The union was formed in 1920 when various unions amalgamated to form the National Union of Sheet Metal Workers and Braziers. In 1959 the National Union of Sheet Metal Workers and Braziers amalgamated with the National Society of Coppersmiths, Braziers and Metal Workers to form the National Union of Sheet Metal Workers and Coppersmiths. In 1967 this amalgamated with the Heating and Domestic Engineers' Union to form the National Union of Sheet Metal Workers, Coppersmiths, Heating and Domestic Engineers. In 1983 the union became part of the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers (Technical, Administrative and Supervisory Section). In 1988, the Technical, Administrative and Supervisory Section merged with the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs to form Manufacturing, Science, Finance.
