RTBU: a proud history
The RTBU was formed 1 March 1993 through the historic amalgamation of three railway unions and one tram and bus union. These unions have a strong tradition dating back to the nineteenth century. The oldest was the Locomotive Engine Drivers' Association which formed in 1861 in Victoria making the RTBU the oldest rail union in Australia.
