2. Register of organisations
This register of applications by organisations was kept by the Industrial Registry from 1946 to 1961. It is a record of all the applications made by registered organisations to the Commonwealth Court of Conciliation and Arbitration (to 1956) and then to the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Commission (from 1956).
The register covers applications in regard to registration under the relevant Act, name changes, rules changes (including eligibility rules) and holding elections.
Similar types of applications are still made today, now under the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009.
