Struggle, Solidarity and Unity: 150 Years of Maritime Unions in Australia

Struggle, Solidarity and Unity: 150 Years of Maritime Unions in Australia explores the rich history of Australia’s maritime unions, drawing from our extensive collections of records from the Seamen’s Union of Australia, Waterside Workers’ Federation of Australia, Maritime Union of Australia, and affiliated trade unions. The exhibition highlights some of the key events, campaigns and personalities from the unions’ past 150 years. You can see the exhibition in the Menzies Library at the Australian National University or online.
