Biographical history

The Technical Teachers' Union of Victoria was formed from the Technical Teachers' Association of Victoria which had operated independently from the Victorian Teachers' Union since 1967. Although a breakaway from the Victorian Teachers' Union, growing dissatisfaction with the Victorian Teachers' Tribunal led, in 1976, to an agreement between the Victorian Teachers' Union, the Technical Teachers' Union of Victoria and the Victorian Secondary Teachers' Association to work together on the basis of joint policy, for improved industrial relations for teachers. In August 1981 the VTU Victorian Federation subcommittee agreed that there should be a Victorian Teachers' Federation modelled on the NSW Teachers' Federation. In July 1984 the Teacher's Federation of Victoria was established as an umbrella organisation for industrial purposes, with the three teacher unions remaining autonomous. In 1990 the Technical Teachers' Union of Victoria and the Victorian Teachers' Union amalgamated as the Federated Teachers' Union of Victoria. By 1995 the Victorian Secondary Teachers' Association had also amalgamated with them to form the Victorian Branch of the Australian Education Union.

By 1995 the Victorian Secondary Teachers' Association had amalgamated with the FTUV to form the Victorian Branch of the Australian Education Union.
