All Sydney Branch positions are due to come up for re-election in the second half of 2017.
The Branch has had detailed correspondence with the Fair Work Commission [prior to the establishment of the Registered Organisations Commission on 1st May 2017] about the problem of having the current terms of office expire on three different dates.
The Fair Work Commission strongly recommended that only one election process should be conducted and that this would bring the dates all back into alignment.
This was accepted by all current office holders.
The FWC then appointed the Australian Electoral Commission to conduct the elections.
The positions to be elected are as follows:
Ordinary Members of Federal Council (2)
The Election Notice was published in the May 2017 edition of On Watch.
