The Australian Postal Linesmen's Union was registered in 1919 as a renaming of the Australian Telegraph and Telephone Construction and Maintenance Union which had been registered in 1912. The Australian Postal Linesmen's Union amalgamated with the Australian Letter Carriers' Association (then known as the Commonwealth Public Service Fourth Division Employees' Union of Australia) and the Postal Sorters' Union of Australia to form the Amalgamated Postal Linesmen, Sorters' and Letter Carriers' Union of Australia in 1925, which was renamed the Amalgamated Postal Workers' Union of Australia in 1926.
