Trade Union entry Victorian Typographical Society (1916 - 1921)
- Trade Union (State or Territory only)
Formed from the old Melbourne Typographical Society in 1916, the Victorian Typographical Society eventually merged with other associated Victorian printing unions into the already established Printing Industry Employees' Union of Australia in 1921.
Operating until 1966 the Printing Industry Employees' Union of Australia eventually changed its name to the Printing & Kindred Industries Union. In 1986 the Printing & Kindred Industries Union amalgamated with the Federated Photo Engravers, and in 1992 with the Victorian Printers Operatives' Union and although it was impelled to reregister each time, it remained in name the Printing & Kindred Industries Union [PKIU]. In 1995 the PKIU amalgamated with the Automotive Food Metals and Engineering Union to form the Automotive Food Metals Engineering Printing & Kindred Industries Union, otherwise known as the Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union.
