Biographical history

The Textile Workers' Union was established in the aftermath of World War One, reflecting the diversification of the industry during the preceding years and its decentralisation during the 1920s. It amalgamated with the Federated Felt Hatting and Allied Trade Employees' Union of Australia in 1984, and with the Boot and Clothing trade unions thereafter to form the Amalgamated Footwear & Textile Workers Union of Australia in 1987. In 1992 the union amalgamated with the Clothing & Allied Trades Union of Australia to become the Textile Clothing & Footwear Union of Australia.
