The staff association at Lloyds had its origins in a works council which came into operation in 1918 while the creation of the MBSA in 1919 resulted from a desire to confront the BOG. Staff association were also established in the National Provincial (National Provincial Bank Staff Association), Westminster (the Westminster Bank Guild), and Barclays (Barclays Bank Staff Association) banks in 1919. The Martin’s Bank Staff Association was established in the following year.

Although immeasurably strengthened by the reaching of full (armed forces) demobilisation and the return to employment of these radicalised workers, the banks uniformly refused the overture from the BOG and the Ministry of Labour was unwilling to act against this staunch opposition in such a strategic sector of the economy. 1 Some success in gaining the status of a representative agent was recorded when the BOG was admitted to the Banking Insurance Unemployed Council in 1922. However, by 1923, the BOG President was urging a re-evaluation of the moderate and nonpolitical approach because of its sparse return (Blackburn 1967:137, 138–139) 1 However, Morris (1986a:27) reported absolute and relative membership being lower (10,000, 35%) in 1921.

Even so, not all banks were particularly keen to concede staff representation, even if this was to forestall the BOG, with Blackburn (1967:142–147) recording that all were established with varying degrees of (positive) support and approval. Nonetheless, they all offered a clear alternative to the BOG (Blackburn 1967:140). By 1921, five had been established in the major clearers (Morris 1986a:28).
