I figured that for every successful organization that made it in the Wasteland, there'd be ten that failed, and so I came up with some organization for Jake that explained where he got his weapons that wasn't "I used to be in the Brotherhood"... It's a throwaway bit intended to make the world a little messier; it's more believable if everything doesn't tie together neatly.

Scott Bennie, Fallout Bible 8

The Union of Atomic Workers was a high-technology organization destroyed by mutants in 2151.

Background

The Union was a group of technological specialists similar to the Brotherhood of Steel, except significantly more isolationist. Its strict hierarchy and desire to keep to themselves resulted in shunning of the outside world. However, those who did not agree with the organization's policies were free to leave. The knowledge of machining and weapons technology imparted to its members allowed the few former members to find a lucrative niche in weapons trade, as was the case with one Jake in the Hub circa 2161. Their weapons rivaled those made by the Brotherhood.[1] Unfortunately for commercial diversity and competition, the Union was wiped out by mutants around 2151.[2]

Appearances

The Union of Atomic Workers is mentioned by Jake.[2]
