Update from National Council meetings

Earlier this month United Voice and NUW National Councils voted to move forward with the proposal to build a big new union. Both unions have now jointly submitted the official paperwork to the Fair Work Commission to apply for a ballot of members.

Ballots will be sent to members’ postal address so make sure your contact details are up-to-date with either United Voice or NUW to ensure you have your say for a new union.

Once the application has been approved by the Fair Work Commission the ballot will be run by the Australian Electoral Commission later this year. We will continue to update members on the New Union, including when the ballot will be run.
