Welcome to the web page of the Sydney Branch of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History. The Branch has been active since 1981. Membership of the Branch is open to all persons interested in the history of working life and the labour movement, both industrial and political. The Branch organises a number of talks throughout the year, often including during History Week, as well as undertaking specific projects from time to time, and where appropriate works with other organisations to further the objectives of the Society. Sydney Branch members receive regular notices of activities by email or mail and are sent copies of the branch bulletin, The Hummer. The Branch maintains a Facebook page where members and interested others can access current information related to labour history and a Twitter account.
