The NTEU University of New England protected industrial action ballot opened last week and our members should have received their ballots by this afternoon.

Please vote! If you are unsure or have any questions about the ballot please do not hesitate to contact the branch (ext.3175) or our AEC Returning Officer (details below).
If you have not received your ballot paper by Wednesday 6th, please get in touch with our AEC Returning Officer Yvonne Lea, on 6772 5424 or Yvonne.email@example.com
