LONDON AND PROVINCIAL UNION OF LICENSED VEHICLE WORKERS. DECEMBER CLEARANCE 1914
London & England & UK
While most trade unions used membership cards to keep a record of union dues paid, some trade unions used a badge. This "December Clearance 1914" badge records that the member is up to date with his payments at the end of a particular three-month period, a quarter, in 1914. They were called quarterly control badges. This kind of badge was first issued by a number of new unions, particularly dockers and vehicle workers, in the 1890s.
The London And Provincial Union Of Licensed Vehicle Workers was established in 1913 and
in 1919 it merged with the Amalgamated Association Of Tramway And Vehicle Workers to form the United Vehicle Workers.
