Biographical history

The union was formed in 1915 and registered in 1916 originally bringing together three State unions: the Passenger and Goods Lift Attendants' Union of New South Wales (1909), the Watchmen, Caretakers and Cleaners' Union of New South Wales (1910), and the Watchmen, Caretakers and Male Office Cleaners' Union of Victoria (1913). It amalgamated with over 50 unions in its long history including unions representing billiard markers, undertakers' assistants, hairdressers, watchmakers, dental technicians, photographic employees, ambulance employees, and sailmakers. Its final amalgamation was with the Federated Liquor and Allied Industries Employees' Union of Australia to form the Australian Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers' Union in 1992.

Biographical history

In 1910 the Victorian Liquor Trades Union met with other interstate brewery unions to form a federated union, the Federated Liquor Trade Employees' Union of Australasia. The union expanded its membership into allied industries to cover hotel workers, restaurants, clubs, caterers, boarding houses, yeast and vinegar factories and canteens. In 1918, in order to reflect this expansion the union was renamed the Federated Liquor and Allied Industries Employees' Union of Australasia. In 1958 it changed name again to the Federated Liquor and Allied Industries Employees' Union of Australia. In 1992 it amalgamated with the Federated Miscellaneous Workers' Union to form the Australian Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers' Union.
