National Trades' and Workers' Association
NATIONAL TRADES' AND WORKERS' ASSOCIATION
NATIONAL TRADES' AND WORKERS' ASSOCIATION, an organization begun in 1910 in Battle Creek, Michigan, by Charles Williams Post, head of the Postum Cereal Company, to fight trade unions. Post's company produced such well-known products as Postum breakfast beverage and Grape-Nuts and Post Toasties cereals. The National Trades' and Workers' Association replaced the Citizens' Industrial Association, which Post had founded in 1902. The Square Deal, the new association's organ, provided accounts of the evils of organized labor. It advocated arbitration for labor disputes and opposed closed shops, strikes, lockouts, boycotts, and black-listing. Only a few locals were established, and the association came to an end soon after Post's death in 1914.
