Biographical history

The union was formed in 1914 by masons in the Bricklayers' Society who felt that their interests would be better served by a society of their own. In 1918 it became the South Australian branch of the Operative Stonemasons' Society of Australia. Although the Operative Stonemasons' Society of Australia was not deregistered until 1991, the South Australian branch had by 1962 amalgamated with the Federated Miscellaneous Workers' Union.
