Our people


Council is the highest decision making-body of our union. It is made up of representatives from each school and campus in addition to members of Executive. Councillors represent the views of their workplace colleagues in the deliberations of the ACT Branch as a whole.


Our Executive is directly elected by the whole membership of our union. Its function is to conduct the affairs of the union in between meetings of Branch Council.
