Biographical history

The Union was originally known as the Federated Railway Locomotive Enginemen's Association of Australasia after the amalgamation of the Locomotive Engine Drivers' & Firemens' Association from Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland. In February 1921, it was renamed the Australian Federated Union of Locomotive Enginemen and gained federal registration with the Federal Arbitration Court. By 1926 the union had changed its name to the Australian Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, but reverted back to Australian Federated Union of Enginemen in 1927. In 1993 the AFULE merged with the Australian Tramway & Motor Omnibus Employees' Association, the National Union of Rail Workers of Australia and the Australian Railways Union to form the Australian Rail Tram & Bus Industry Union.

Biographical history

The South Australian Locomotive Engine Drivers and Firemen's Association was formed around 1885. It continued to be known by this name (and later as the South Australian Locomotive Enginemen, Firemen and Cleaners' Association) despite its membership of the Federated Railway Locomotive Enginemen's Association of Australasia in 1900 and only in the 1920s identified itself as the South Australian branch of the Australian Federated Union of Locomotive Enginemen.
