The United Weldors, Cutters, and Helpers of America (UWCH) was officially organized in 1939 to protect the rights of workers within those industries and professions. In 1941, the UWCH merged with the Weldors International Association (WIA) and in 1942 with the National Brotherhood of Weldors and Burners of America, Weldors and Burners Councils of Seattle and Tacoma, and the Chicago Weldors' Union. The UWCH, after these mergers, officially became the United Brotherhood of Weldors, Cutters, and Helpers of America (UBWCH).
