History

The Food Preservers' Union of Australia has a history dating back to around 1898 with a union of jam, sauce and pickle works employees and was registered federally in 1911 as the Jam Sauce Pickle and Food Preserving Employees' Union of Australia. Its name was changed in 1916 to the Amalgamated Food Preserving Employees' Union of Australia and in 1929 the union registered itself as the Food Preservers' Union of Australia. In 1992, the union amalgamated with the Confectionery Workers' Union to become the Food Preservers' Division of the Confectionery Workers' and Food Preservers Union of Australia.
