The Australian National University Administrative and Allied Officers' Association [ANUAAOA] was formed in 1972 to represent middle-level and senior administrative staff at the ANU.
By 1993, however, ANUAAOA recognised the need to form a single, stronger union for the whole tertiary education industry. Merging with the Federated Australian University Staff Association [FAUSA], the Australian Colleges and Universities Staff Association [ACUSA], the University of Adelaide General Staff Association [UAGSA] and the Union of Australian College Academics [UACA], FAUSA helped form the National Tertiary Education Industry Union [NTEU]. The NTEU provided a united voice for tertiary education workers, without the old, arbitrary divisions between different parts of the industry or different categories of workers. The amalgamation was endorsed by an overwhelming majority of members of each of the five unions.
