The Burnley, Nelson, Rossendale and District Textile Workers' Union (BNRDTWU) was a trade union in the United Kingdom. The union was formed by the merger of the Burnley and Nelson Weavers' Associations in 1966, with Rossendale and Padiham added in the 1970s.[1] In 1984, with a membership of 1,600, it merged into the Transport and General Workers Union.[2]
