PRES 9 of 2022 – Letter Enc Directions

Attention All Members

Under rule 199(3) Part XVI of the ARTBIU rules and rule 35.1 of the State Union’s rules, elections to the ARTBIU West Australian PTA Branch (and therefore offices of the State Union) are to occur every 4 years, or until their successor is declared at the next election.

Accordingly, under the rules the office bearers of both the West Australian PTA Branch and the State Union continue to hold over office until their successors are elected.

The inaugural elections for the new merged ARTBIU Western Australia Branch are to occur in October 2022 with the nominations for office bearers opening from 22 August 2022 and closing on 12 September 2022 and the voting period opening on 24 October 2022 and closing 21 November 2022. The persons elected office bearers of that Branch will be waiting in situ until 1 January 2023 to take corresponding offices of the New State Union (subject to the obtaining of a s 71 certificate).

Due to the merger of the ARTBIU federal WA branches and the upcoming inaugural elections of the office bearers of the new merged “ARTBIU Western Australia Branch”, the Australian Electoral Council does not intend to run elections to fill the offices of the West Australian PTA Branch.

Therefore an s 66 application (see link below) has been lodged and seeks to waive the observance under the rules of the State Union to run elections to fill the office bearer positions of the State Union; and seeks an order that that the current office holders of the State Union hold over their offices until 31 December 2022 after which point the offices of the New State Union become automatically filled.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the WAIRC Registry by email to registry@wairc.wa.gov.au, quoting the matter number, or by telephone on (08) 9420 4444.

Alternatively, contact your State Secretary Joshua Dekuyer by email to joshd@rtbuwa.asn.au, or by telephone on (08) 9225 6722 if you wish to discuss.
