Biographical history

Federally registered in 1920 as the Australian Insurance Staffs' Federation, this union has had a strongly active tradition in the white collar sphere. Boosted in membership by the deregistration of the New South Wales Insurance Officers' Association in 1948, the Australian Insurance Staffs' Federation changed its name in 1976 to the Australian Insurance Employees' Union. It amalgamated with other unions in the finance industry in 1991 to form the Finance Sector Union of Australia, which was reregistered in 1994 following the amalgamation with the Commonwealth Bank Officers' Association.
