Biographical history

An informal council of Commonwealth staff associations was formed in Melbourne in 1915, adopting a constitution in 1919. On 26 October 1921 a revised constitution was adopted forming the High Council of Commonwealth Public Service Organisations. It dropped the High from its name in 1969 and amended its name to the Council of Australian Government Employee Organisations at its 1975 Biennial Conference. The 1981 Congress of the Australian Council of Trade Unions endorsed the proposal that CAGEO merge with the ACTU as one of its industry groups and it formally merged on 23 September 1981 becoming the Australian Government Employment Section of the ACTU.
