Trades and Labor Council of Queensland Records

  • UQFL118

The collection reflects not only the emergence of the central organising body of the Trades and Labor Council of Queensland, achieved in 1947, but the often radical and pioneering nature of the Queensland labour movement itself. This is especially to be seen in documents relating to the 1890s shearers' strikes, the Cosme Settlement, the 1912 tramway strike, the 1946/48 strikes and those of the 1960s. Includes minutes (1922-1984), reports, agenda and decisions, financial records, correspondence, subject files, newspaper clippings, and photographs.
Papers relate to : industrial disputes, Cosme colony, the Eight Hour Day Movement, Communist Party of Australia (Queensland) and Australian Labor Party, Workers' Educational Association, Australian Labor Day Committee, Queensland Industrial Court, Trade Union congresses, and Australian Council of Trade Unions.
Includes issues of The Organiser (1937-1939) and Cosme Monthly (1894-1904).
