Historical Note about the Structural Building Trades Alliance

The Structural Building Trades Alliance was formed in Chicago during a conference of building trades unions held from October 7 to October 10, 1903 and was an American federation of labor unions in the construction industry. In 1908, it affiliated with the American Federation of Labor and became the Building Trades Department. The organisation's primary goal was to provide a forum in which jurisdictional conflicts between trade unions could be adjudicated.
