A.C.T. Trades and Labour Council – Presidents and Secretaries, 1931–2001
The oral history project gave rise to a separate project to compile a list of past office bearers of the ACT Trades and Labour Council. We acknowledge the contribution of these officials to the history of the union movement in the ACT and thank Ewan Maidment and Barry Howarth for making the list available.
