Transfer strategies are examined by reference to the minor (transferor) and major (transferee) unions' merger motivations. The characteristics of both minor and major partners are discussed by reference to their territorial interests, recent changes in membership size, and financial standing. Minor unions are categorized according to three different merger streams (geographic concentration; white collar assimilation; and cognate trades). The major unions driving the highly competitive ‘merger market’ are identified as AMICUS, T&G, and the GMB and their antecedents, such as AEEU, MSF, UNIFI, and EETPU.
