Dates of existence
1937 - 1987
The Australian Teachers' Federation was formed in 1937 but originated as the Australian Teachers' Union in 1930. Its member base expanded greatly when members of the defunct Federated State School Teachers' Association of Australia migrated across in 1950. By 1987 the union had, once again, adopted the name Australian Teachers' Union, which it retained until 1993, despite an amalgamation in 1991 with the ACT Teachers' Federation and the Northern Territory Teachers' Federation. From 1993, the Union has been known as the Australian Education Union.
