The Transport and General Workers Union or TGWU or simply the "T&G" was formed in 1922 by the merger of fourteen separate unions largely engineered by Ernest Bevin who became its first general secretary. By a policy of merger and expansion it overtook the Miners Federation to become Britain's largest trade union in the late 1920s, a position it retained until the formation of Unison in 1993.

Over the years the TGWU has swallowed up a whole range of other smaller unions which are detailed below;
