Known voting issue affecting support staff in Diocese of Wagga Wagga

The union has been made aware that at least 109 support staff in the Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga have been incorrectly left off the list to vote on the new Catholic Systemic Schools Enterprise Agreement 2020.


The union has identified the issue, and the issue has been raised with the diocesan leadership for rectification.


All affected staff should now be able to vote.


If you have still not received your voting information and believe you are eligible to participate, or are having any difficulties participating in the vote, please contact the Returning Officer, Richard Kidd, at the Australian Election Company immediately on FreeCall 1800 224 420 or by email at

If you are unable to resolve an issue after contacting the Australian Election Company, please contact the union. We will do everything within our power to help you and make sure your vote is cast and your voice is heard.


The union is recommending to all our members in Catholic Systemic schools, teachers and support staff, to vote ‘YES’ for the proposed Enterprise Agreement. Please ensure you cast your vote in the ballot on the EA and encourage your colleagues to do the same. A high turnout in the ballot assists the approval process of the EA in the Fair Work Commission and secures these benefits.
