The National Graphical Association (NGA) was a British trade union. It was formed in 1964 by the merger of two long-term rival unions, the Typographical Association and the London Typographical Society. It was joined by a large number of small craft print unions including the Society of Electrotypers and Stereotypers; Press Telegraphists; The Association of Correctors Of The Press; Amalgamated Lithographic Printers; Society of Lithographic Artists, Designers and Engravers and the National Union of Wallcoverings and Allied Trades Union. By 1982 it had a membership of 136,300.
The NGA merged with the Society of Graphical and Allied Trades in 1990 to form the Graphical, Paper and Media Union.

“With all their faults, trade-unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the betterment of the race, for the developing of character in man, than any other association of men.”
—Clarence Darrow (18571938)
“The cultivation of one set of faculties tends to the disuse of others. The loss of one faculty sharpens others; the blind are sensitive in touch. Has not the extreme cultivation of the commercial faculty permitted others as essential to national life, to be blighted by disease?”
—J. Ellen Foster (18401910)
