In 1910 thirty workers met together in a small room in Trades Hall Sydney to form a tiny union which became The Misso's (Federated Miscellaneous Workers Union).

The First award they achieved made it illegal for employers to have watchmen working more than 72 hours a week. That was in 1911, and the union has been working for members ever since.

This story is about ordinary men and women working together to achieve the extraordinary: In the factories and shops; in the trade union movement; in the parliaments of Australia.
