History

The New South Wales Fire Brigade Officers' Association was a separate organisation from the Fire Brigades Association of New South Wales representing a distinction between officers and firefighters. Its earliest minutes of meetings date from 1925. In 1948 it amalgamated with the Fire Brigades Association of New South Wales to form the New South Wales Fire Brigade Employees' Union. Officers joined firefighters on strike for the first time, over pay. Just a year later, in 1949, a splinter group of senior officers formed an independent Senior Officers' Association. By 1975, the Senior Officers' Association and the FBEU formally amalgamated.
