Dates of existence

1905 - 1979


This union had its origins in the Bread Carters' Industrial Federal Union of Australia which was established in 1905. In 1916 the bread carters changed the name of their union to the Bread Carters' Industrial Federation of Australia when a federation of Victorian and South Australian Branches was formed. By 1934 there was a New South Wales Branch. In 1979 following an influx of members from the soon-to-be deregistered Baking Trade Employees' Federation of Australia, the union registered as the Bakery Employees' and Salesmen's Federation of Australia.
