History

The Wireworkers' Union of New South Wales was formed on 2 November 1901 and on registration in 1902 changed its name to the Wire Netting Workers' Union of New South Wales. In 1928 it was registered again as the Wireworkers' Union of New South Wales, a branch of the Wireworkers, Wire Fence and Tubular Gate Workers' Union of Australia. The NSW Union amalgamated with the NSW Branch of the Federation Ironworkers' Association of Australia in November 1944, though the federal union did not amalgamate until 1966.
