History

The Australian Commonwealth Post and Telegraph Officers' Association was formed in 1912, and changed its name to the Australian Postal Assistants' Union in 1917. In 1926 it was renamed the Fourth Division Postmasters', Postal Clerks' and Telegraphists' Union, the term 'Fourth Division' referring to the lowest-paid division of the Commonwealth Public Service. It remained an autonomous body until amalgamating with the Australian Third Division Telegraphists' and Postal Clerks' Union, effective from 19 February 1967, to form the Union of Postal Clerks and Telegraphists.
