The union was founded in 1924 as a section of the Iron and Steel Trades Confederation (ISTC). It left the ISTC and became an independent union in 1930. In 1971, the union merged with the Amalgamated Union of Engineering and Foundry Workers to form the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers, becoming the largely autonomous construction section of the new union.
The union sponsored a successful Labour Party candidate in several Parliamentary elections.
