The union was founded in 1908 as the National Union of Corporation Workers, which split from the Municipal Employees Association, following Albin Taylor's dismissal as General Secretary. The union became NUPE in 1925.
The NUPE grew rapidly, from a membership of 250,100 in 1966 to 693,100 members in 1977, making it the fifth largest union in Britain.
A similarly named trade union exists in New Zealand as of 2012.
