Welcome to the website of the South Australian Branch of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History.

The Branch has been active since 1987. Our aim is to study, record and celebrate the diversity of working life, labour traditions and social history. Branch members include labour movement and community activists, researchers, students and academics, teachers, parliamentarians and those with a general interest in labour and related history.

You can find out more about us, get information on and book for the latest event, read the Branch newsletter and become a member all from this site. You can also forward queries, ideas and feedback.
