Notice to members of the Mining, Energy and Ports District of the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy, Industrial Union of Employees, Queensland
The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union, Mining and Energy Division, Queensland District Branch (‘District’) recently held an election for offices that correspond with offices of the Mining, Energy And Ports District of the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy, Industrial Union of Employees, Queensland (‘Qld District’).
The District is the federal counterpart body of the Qld District. To avoid holding two (2) elections for corresponding offices, the Union Secretary of the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy, Industrial Union of Employees, Queensland will, at the request of the Qld District Secretary, make an application for exemption from holding an election under section 802 of the Industrial Relations Act 2016 (Qld).
The application is being made so that the member who fills an office in the District will fill the corresponding office in the Qld District. The members of Qld District will not be detrimentally affected as members have already voted, or been given the opportunity to vote, in the election held for the federal counterpart body.
This notice will apply to any vacant offices in the Qld District until the expiry of the term which commences in 2020, where the office in which the vacancy occurs (in the Qld District) corresponds with an office in the District, and where the District has held an election for its vacant office.
