Protected industrial action

While the last vote was overwhelmingly in favour of taking action to protect your working conditions, not enough votes were received for the ballot outcome to be approved. The good news is the Fair Work Commission has approved for you to vote again on whether you're prepared to take protected industrial action, and this time voting will be conducted online.
Here is how it will work:

  • Roll of voters closes at 5pm on Monday 14 Feb. Current HACSU members will be automatically enrolled.
  • Before 9am on Tuesday 15 Feb you'll get a text message from online voting company CiVS with details on how to vote.
  • The online voting ballot opens at 9am on Tuesday 15 Feb and closes at 2pm on Thursday 24 Feb.
  • CiVS will send out the results following the close of the ballot.

Between now and the close of the roll of voters at the close of business Monday please let us know if any of your details have changed or call to join HACSU on 1300 880 032.

We’ll keep you updated but, in the meantime, HACSU organisers and your workplace delegates are available if you have any questions.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email assist@hacsu.org.au or complete our online contact form
