Biographical history

The Amalgamated Postal Workers' Union had its origins in the Australian Letter Carriers' Association which was registered federally in 1912. In 1924 it changed its name to the Commonwealth Public Service Fourth Division Employees' Union of Australia only to amalgamate a year later with the Postal Sorters' Union of Australia to form the Amalgamated Postal Linesmen Sorters' and Letter Carriers' Union of Australia. From 1926 it was known as the Amalgamated Postal Workers' Union and it survived until 1974 when it changed its name to the Australian Postal and Telecommunications Union.
