Good news for us – the AEC has extended the ballot deadline for your Protected Action Ballot because of delays with AusPost – but this week is our last chance to get those ballots in the post.

This ballot is a tangible way for you to show management that you will not accept less than you deserve and that you are willing to work for a fair EA for all CBA staff.

The ballot will ask you to vote on which action you are seeking protection for. We need you to vote yes to every item and get your ballot back in the prepaid envelope and back in the post today to have your vote counted.

We need over 50% of eligible voters to return their ballot with yes votes for this to be a success.

The AEC has told us that we’re sitting just a few ballots shy of the target to have our votes counted. If you forgot to post your ballot before Christmas, if it’s in a stack of mail on your bench, in your handbag or in your car, dig it out and get it in a post-box today!

You can confirm the AEC has received your vote by calling either: (02) 9375 6366 or (03) 9285 7111.

If you have any questions about this, you can contact your FSU directly on 1300 366 378, or email
