The United Textile Workers of America was chartered in 1901 as an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor. It was a charter member of the Committee for Industrial Organizations (CIO) in 1935, and in 1937 also was one of the founding unions of the Congress of Industrial Organizations. Once in the CIO in 1937, the UTWA was renamed the Textile Workers Organizing Committee and then the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA). In 1939, a small dissident faction of TWUA sought for and was allowed to re-affiliate with the AFL under their old, UTWA, name. In 1996, UTWA merged with the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.
