The union was founded in 1947 and was initially chaired by Kanson Arahata.[1] It was a founding affiliate of the General Council of Trade Unions of Japan. By 1967, it had 208,831 members,[2] which had declined to 145,000 by 1988.[3] In 1989, it merged with several smaller unions to form the National Metal and Machinery Workers’ Union.[4]
