Following the recent Elections for Federal Executive Councillors the AEC provides the ALAEA and the Fair Work Commission with a written report on the conduct of the election Regulation 141(4) of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Regulations 2009 requires an organisation or branch to publish a notice on its website advising members that a copy of the Post-Election Report is available upon request.

 

Section 198 of the Act requires that if an organisation or branch is given a Post-Election Report (PER) under Section 197 that identifies a rule that was difficult to interpret or apply, the organisation or branch must, within 30 days, give a written response to the AEC on that aspect of the report. The response must specify whether the organisation or branch intends to take any action in relation to the rule, and if so, what action it intends to take.

 

Section198 and the regulations also require an organisation to make the Post-Election Report and the organisation’s response to the report (if applicable) available to members.

 

Further, Regulation 141(4) of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Regulations 2009 requires an organisation or branch to publish a notice on its website advising members that a copy of the Post-Election Report is available upon request.

 

The AEC provided a PER that identified a difficulty in interpreting or apply the ALAEA rules in relation the selection of the order that candidates appear on the ballot paper. The ALAEA has indicated that it will takes steps to amend the rules to allow a draw to be conducted by the returning officer. A copy of the PER and the ALAEA response can be downloaded below.
