This talk will explore the rise, fall and rise again of Jewish Tailors’ Trade Unions in Leeds. It will look at the reasons behind the creation of the unions, at the success and failure of leadership and at the co-operation of the Leeds Jewish and non-Jewish clothing unions which led to the creation of the national United Garment Workers’ Trade Union in 1915. It will question whether the support for the Jewish unions resulted from the workers’ desire for protection from the employers or their belief in the ethos of organised labour and why the Leeds Jewish unions were more successful than their London counterparts.
