Federated Engine Drivers & Firemen

The Federated Engine Drivers’ and Firemen’s Association of Australasia has a long history dating back to local engine drivers’ unions on Australian goldfields. The union, however, was not registered nationally until 1908.

The union represented engine drivers and firemen, crane drivers, dynamo and boiler attendants, forklift drivers and plant operators in hospitals, abattoirs, dockyards, brickworks, mines, power stations and factories.
