Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners (Townsville Branch) Archive

The Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners of Australia (ASC&J), which became the Building Workers’ Industrial Union of Australia (BWIU) in 1945, was active in North Queensland at least from the 1910s. This small collection was acquired at the same time as the BWIU Archive and should be read in conjunction with it.
