Notice to members - roll of eligible voters


The registered rules of United Voice make extensive provision for the compilation of the roll of voters in the forthcoming election. The Secretary is required to compile and certify an electoral roll which contains the names and addresses of all members who are entitled to a vote in accordance with the rules. The roll so certified is supplied to the Australian Electoral Commission which conducts the elections for United Voice.

Rule 41 of the registered rules of United Voice sets out the basis upon which members are eligible to be included on the roll and therefore entitled to vote. The rule is designed to maximise the opportunities for members to be included on the roll and to vote.

The rule also obliges the Secretary to write to all employers who administer payroll deduction schemes to ensure that all payroll deductions are remitted to the United Voice branch office.

Any member who believes that he or she should be or should have been included on the roll and who is not on the roll may complain to the Secretary.  A decision of the Secretary adverse to the members may be appealed to a special disputes committee established for that purpose under the rules.

Members wishing to consult the actual rule are advised to read Rule 41 of the registered rules.  A full copy of this rule is available from your local United Voice branch office upon request.

Win for United Voice members - Serco backs down on super

Serco’s attempts to change United Voice members’ superannuation funds have been defeated.

In January Serco sent out a notice stating that a new commercial superannuation fund would be the default fund - but United Voice members weren’t taking that lying down.

Following several delegate meetings and frank exchanges with the company, Serco has now written to United Voice confirming that it will not make any changes to the super fund of employees covered by your Enterprise Agreement.

Without strong action from United Voice, Serco would have gotten away with meddling with your super. Changing your fund could have reduced your earnings and cost you more in fees. Australian Super is the default fund guaranteed by the EA. United Voice members won this right to ensure that they couldn’t be ripped off by a dodgy fund chosen by Serco.

 Congratulations to all United Voice members! 


Check with your super fund to make sure that your super has been paid to the right account. If you are with Australian Super you can check your account by calling 1300 300 273 or online at

If Serco have paid your super to the incorrect fund, contact United Voice now - 1800 805 027
