Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The London Master Builders' Association, under the name of the Central Association of Master Builders of London, was founded in 1872 with the object of promoting and protecting the interests of the building trade of London in general and of Members of the Association in particular, by united action in the settlement of all questions arising between employers and their workmen; by general adoption of equitable conditions of contract; by the interchange of information throughout the Country and the collection of statistics of general interest to the trade; by the assistance of members during trade disputes, at the discretion of the Council; and by the establishment and conduct of an Employment Bureau for builders' foremen, clerks and others.

The name was changed to the London Master Builders' Association in February 1899. Between 1918 and 1922 it was known successively as the London Master Builders and Aircraft Industries Association and the London Master Builders and Allied Industries Association, reverting to London Master Builders' Association in 1922. It became the London Region of the National Federation of Building Trades Employers in 1928; a body which as the National Association of Master Builders of Great Britain, had been established in 1878, as a direct outcome of the mason's strike of 1877/8.
