The Union of Australian College Academics was registered in February 1987 to represent mainly academic staff in the Colleges of Advanced Education, following that membership base into the university sector as institutions amalgamated or changed their status. It ran concurrently with its predecessor the Federated Council of Academics until 1993. It merged with the Federated Australian University Staff Association, the Australian Colleges and Universities Staff Association, the University of Adelaide General Staff Association and the Australian National University Administrative and Allied Officers' Association to form the National Tertiary Education Industry Union in 1993.
