Public Notices.

This page is used by the Union to inform members and the public on matters of importance and as required by applicable legislation.

The United Workers Union came into operation from 11 November 2019 (the amalgamation day) as a result of the successful amalgamation between the National Union of Workers and United Voice. Accordingly some of the information on this page includes reporting or disclosures of the amalgamating unions that commenced prior to the amalgamation day but it is necessary to continue to publish after the amalgamation day.

Rule 66 of the UWU rules allow the Union’s Member Council or the National Executive to make administrative regulations for the administration of the Union and that when made or amended that they be placed on the Union website.

Copies of administrative regulations are available to view below.

The National Convention of the UWU comprises delegates elected by the Union’s industrial membership who reside in electorates which are determined by the organisations rules and the Union’s Member Council.

The number of Convention delegates is determined by amongst other things, the grouping together of electoral divisions of the House of Represenetives under the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Cth) in a manner that ensures each electorate has at least 2,500 industrial members residing in it.

The formation of the UWU on 11 November 2019 provides that the Inaugural National Convention is comprised of delegates who are identified under transitional rules. The names of the Inaugural National Convention delegates appear at Rule 20 of Schedule 5 of the Union’s rules.

Rule 9(j) requires that the electorates of the Union along with the Commonwealth Electorates that comprise each electorate be made available on the Unions website. You can view a copy of the inaugural electorates as of 11 November 2019 here.
