The Fair Work Commission has approved an amendment to our Union’s rules meaning we can now officially be called the Mining and Energy Union.
While we remain a Division of the CFMMEU for the time being, our desire to stand separately has not diminished. A nationwide vote on changing our name was endorsed by Members via Lodges by almost 200 to 1.
There is no change in how we the Union will be run as we continue the along the legal pathway to a formal demerger from the CFMMEU.
