Dates of existence

1979 - 1995


This union had its origins in the Bread Carters' Industrial Federal Union of Australia which was established in 1905 and was renamed the Bread Carters' Industrial Federation of Australia in 1916. In 1979 following an influx of members from the soon-to-be deregistered Baking Trade Employees' Federation of Australia (which had existed since 1914), the union was registered as the Bakery Employees' and Salesmen's Federation of Australia. It amalgamated with the Australian Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers' Union in 1995.
