Biographical history

The Municipal Officers' Association of Australia was formed in 1920 and was registered in 1921. It grew from a small and politically conservative union into a large and more vocal organisation. In 1991 it amalgamated with the Australian Transport Officers' Federation and the Technical Service Guild of Australia to form the Australian Municipal Transport Energy Water Ports Community and Information Services Union. After amalgamations with other unions in 1993, it changed its name to the Australian Municipal Administrative Clerical and Services Union, known as the Australian Services Union.
