Biographical history

The Federated Clerks' Union of Australia was formed in 1911 by clerical workers in Melbourne. The union changed its name to the Australian Clerical Association in 1917 and in 1924 reverted back to the name Federated Clerks' Union of Australia. A federal union was formed by registering the FCU with the Commonwealth Arbitration Court and by 1920 there were branches of the union in all states. In 1993 both the FCU's national and state branches amalgamated with unions covering local government to become part of the Australian Municipal, Administrative, Clerical and Services Union, otherwise known as the Australian Services Union.
