Harold was a former secretary of the old Carters and Storeman's Union and AWU respectively.

Harold Hartley was a member of the ASE at the time of his election to state parliament in 1915. As Hartley had served his apprenticeship as a fitter at Burns and Twigg and subsequently worked in the railway, in engineering works and foundaries, it is possible he also kept that membership current as well as his AWA/AWU ticket - perhaps for political reasons.

He was treasurer of the AWA in 1912.

Harold Hartley was the member for Fitzroy from 1915 until 1929. (Queensland Parliamentary Handbook, 1983, p261)
