The Amalgamated Union of Building Trade Workers (AUBTW) was a British trade union.

The AUBTW was founded in 1921 when the Operative Society of Masons, Quarrymen and Allied Trades of England and Wales, the Operative Bricklayers' Society and the Manchester Unity of Operative Bricklayers' Society merged. It was joined by the Building and Monumental Workers' Association of Scotland in 1942, the National Builders' Labourers' and Constructional Workers' Society in 1952, the National Society of Street Masons, Paviors and Road Makers in 1966 and the Amalgamated Slaters', Tilers' and Roofing Operatives' Society in 1969.[1]

In 1971, the AUBTW merged with the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers to form the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers, Painters and Builders.[1]
