Selected Events in Trade Union History Interstate and All-Australian Trade Union Congresses



A number of All-Australian or Inter-state Trade Union Congresses were held from 1901 up until the formation of the Australian Council of Trade Unions [ACTU] in 1927. After that date the ACTU organised national congresses of trade unions. If extant records of these later congresses would be found in the ACTU archives.

It is understood that proceedings were published for each congress. To date proceedings for the 1907, 1913, 1922 and 1925 congresses have not been located.
