The Pastrycooks were the first established industrial organisation in Victoria around the turn of the century, created in the hope of achieving State intervention to set minimum wages through the Wages Board system. The pastrycooks subsequently joined up with the industrial unions of biscuit factory employees and allied trades to form the Pastrycooks Employees' Biscuit Makers Employees' and Flour and Sugar Workers' Union of Victoria. The Union was registered federally in 1911 as the Federated Pastrycooks Biscuit Makers Ornamenters and Flour and Sugar Goods Union of Australia, this union operated for six years before changing name in 1917 to the Federated Pastrycooks Employees' Biscuitmakers Employees' and Flour & Sugar Goods Workers' Union of Australia. In 1975 the union became the Pastrycooks Bakers Biscuitmakers and Allied Trades Union. This union was amalgamated into the Australian Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers' Union in 1993.
