1900 - c. 1912


In August 1900 “the stevedores of [port Sydney] finding that they were working at different hours and paying different wages formed an Association with the object of framing regulations to which all the members agreed to adhere and which were simply designed for the purpose of fixing the hours of labour of their workmen and their rates of pay – objects beneficial alike to the labourers themselves, the shipowners and the stevedores”. (Letter of C L Cowper, Chairman of the S.S. Ass. to the editor Fair Play, 30 April 1901, attached to the minutes of the meeting on 30 April 1901). Some time during 1902 the name was changed to Sydney Stevedores’ Wool-dumping and Lighterage Association, Industrial Union of Employers.
