PLEASE NOTE:

Please click here to print election notice and nomination form.

If more than one application is received for any position and a ballot is therefore necessary, the opening date for voting will be Monday 5th November 2018 and the closing date for voting will be midday Wednesday 21 November 2018.

I encourage all members to consider nominating and having an input at your branch level into the running of the Union.

And finally, please note that the upcoming local branch elections are NOT FOR SCM (State Committee of Management) positions. 

The recall for vacant State Committee of Management positions (including the FireCom position) have begun, but they take longer to process through the AEC than the local branch elections.

The SCM elections will be held in the coming months with the dates being determined by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). Once these dates have been received, you will receive notification.
