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.
