Soon after foundation, the union began organising nationally and became the Amalgamated Union of Operative Bakers. It gained prominence when its 1861 campaign for improvements in working conditions led to the Bakehouse Regulations Act 1863. The union gradually adopted a federal structure.
In 1964, the union was renamed the Bakers' Union, but this was later lengthened to the present name.
