AEC suspends union elections - again

(updated  28 07 20)

The Australian Electoral Commission has once again suspended the conduct of industrial elections.

On 24th July the AEC sent to Registered Organisations [including unions] a notice advising that industrial elections will be suspended until the end of September due to the outbreak of COVID-19 cases in Victoria.

Here is the AEC notice:

Letter_to_registered_organisations_-_COVID-19_response_update_July_2020_002.pdf Letter_to_registered_organisations_-_COVID-19_response_update_July_2020_002.pdf (208.44 KB Tue Jul 28 10:12:37 2020)


ROC advice about delayed elections

(updated  28 07 20)

The Registered Organisations Commission has provided AIMPE with advice about the consequences of the postponement on the Federal Council meeting

and the elections which are conducted by the AEC at the Federal Council meeting.

The advice from the ROC to AIMPE is as follows:

Our advice generally is contained in the attached Guidance Note.

 I appreciate AIMPE has already re-scheduled its Federal Council meeting from June to October, but as you point out, it is difficult to say with any certainty that an attendance ballot for Federal Executive offices can proceed even then. The doctrine of holding over as explained in the Guidance Note would continue to apply.

It may be that the AEC may be able to conduct the election in another way, for example, electronically, rather than in person. Or that a further delay in the Federal Council meeting may be required, but that would depend on the AEC’s advice.

The Guidance Note that the ROC has provided to all Registered Organisations is as follows:

gn054-guidance-elections-COVID-19-restrictions_2.pdf gn054-guidance-elections-COVID-19-restrictions_2.pdf (159.10 KB Tue Jul 28 10:19:00 2020)

In brief the ROC Guidance Note advises that the concept of 'holding over' applies to existing office holders except where there is a fixed term. That is, the current Federal Executive members continue in office until the elections can be held.
