History

This union was formed in 1855 initially as the Independent Society but more commonly referred to as the Friendly Society of United Operative Stonemasons of Victoria. It was later called the Trade and Friendly Society of Operative Stone Masons of Victoria. An earlier organisation called the Operative Masons' Benefit Society had existed in Victoria from November 1850 but it went into recess the following year. The union became the Victorian branch of the Operative Stonemasons' Society of Australia in 1918.
