2018 UFU BRANCH ELECTIONS OUTCOME

  • Yesterday, the votes for the only contested position of Branch Secretary were counted by the Australian Electoral Commission.
  • Peter Marshall was elected with a majority of the total votes. 
  • As previously notified President David Hamilton and the Branch Committee of Management were elected unopposed.
  • Peter, David and the Branch Committee of Management thank UFU members for their continued support.  Together we will continue to build on the strong foundation we have achieved for the benefit of all members.
  • The Branch Committee of Management would like to thank all candidates for taking the time to nominate and participate in their Union’s elections.
  • Member participation and interest is extremely important to the health of our Union.  We note that approximately 63% of eligible voters cast their vote.  This is an extremely high figure for non-compulsory elections.  However, apathy can in effect undermine the strength of the Union hence the Branch Committee of Management will explore ways to maximise participation despite the fact that the return was high in comparative terms.
