Municipal Employees' Association
Founded in 1894 as the London County Council Employees' Protection Association to represent the newly formed London County Council's workers, the union was initially led by William Anderson. In 1899 it was renamed the National Association of County Authority Employees, and it grew considerably after the collapse of the National Municipal Labour Union in 1900, and in 1901 it became the "Municipal Employees Association". In 1907, long-term General Secretary Albin Taylor was dismissed by the union's General Council. The following year, he set up a break-away National Union of Corporation Workers. Nevertheless, by 1910, the Association had 13,500 members.
