Biographical history

The Metal Trades Employers' Association dates its history to the formation of the Iron Trades Employers' Association in Sydney in December 1873, after a general strike in the iron trades over the 8-hour day. In 1901 the Association registered under the New South Wales Industrial Arbitration Act and in 1921 changed its name to the Metals Trades Employers' Association. In April 1970 it merged with the Metal Industries Association (Victoria) to form the Metal Trades Industry Association of Australia.
