About Textile Workers Union of America
The Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA) was an industrial union of textile workers established through the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1939. It waged a decades-long campaign to organize J.P. Stevens and other Southern textile manufacturers. In the 1960s and 1970s the TWUA found itself in competition with other unions for representation in large Southern plants and in 1976, the TWUA merged with another garment union, the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, to form the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union (ACTWU). In 1995, ACTWU merged with ILGWU into UNITE!
