Election for Branch Executive On Now
Make sure you vote by May 28 - it's your union!
Executive is the 15-person body elected from members by members to run the ACT Branch of the AEU. Only Council or a Stop-Work meeting can overrule a decision made by Executive.
It comprises of the President, 3 Vice Presidents, Secretary, 8 General Membership Representatives (ie teachers & school assistants), 1 Pre-school Membership Representative and 1 TaFE (ie CIT teachers) Membership Representative
On this occasion, there are 19 nominations for the 8 ‘General Membership Representative’ positions on Branch Executive.
The AEC will send all general financial members a ballot form to be returned by post.
The ballot opens on Thursday, 7 May 2015 and closes at 12 noon on Thursday, 28 May 2015.
Preschool and TAFE Representatives on Executive
Preschool members and TAFE members each have their own representative on Executive but no nominations were received – a new call for nominations for both these positions will be issued shortly. If you think you might be interested, please get in touch with Glenn (Glenn.Fowler@aeuact.org.au, 6272 7900).
Preschool and TAFE members are not eligible to vote for the General Membership Representative positions on Executive - because each group has their own specially designated representative - and will not receive a ballot paper.
Secretary, President and Vice Presidents
The Secretary, President and three Vice-President positions are not currently up for election as the two-year terms for these positions began on January 1 2015.
