NEW MARCH 2018. 1971 marked the one hundredth anniversary of the establishment of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants. A 40-page booklet was published by the National Union of Railwaymen to commemorate the occasion.

The A.S.R.S. was the first railway industrial union but, surprisingly, owed its origins to a man not employed with or by the railways, M.T. Bass, the M.P. for Derby. Not only was he the head of a wealthy firm of brewers, he was also a substantial shareholder in the Midland Railway. The Society was the major constituent of the N.U.R.. This booklet describes the creation of that first union and its early struggles to reduce working hours and ensure that its members were paid a “living wage”. Negotiating procedures, labour relations, the relationship between the NUR and politics, safety and welfare, and modernisation and productivity are briefly described. There are a number of colour photographs, including several of the officers of the union and its executive committee.
