Biographical history

The Motor Transport & Chauffeurs' Association was first registered in 1912. In 1925 representatives of this union met with representatives of the Federated Carters' & Drivers' Industrial Union and the Trolley Draymen & Carters' Union to help form the Amalgamated Road Transport Workers' Union of Australia, a precursor to the Transport Workers' Union of Australia. The Motor Transport & Chauffeurs' Association operated until 1979 but reregistered in the same year without a change of name and continued serving its members until 1987 when it amalgamated into the Transport Workers' Union.
