Employee information provided to ballot agents in Enterprise Agreement bargaining

James Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Productivity Commission as part of a batch sent to 42 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Productivity Commission,

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

I request the document(s) which describe the data provided to the external organisation(s) responsible for conducting the ballot(s) for all Enterprise Agreements put to staff for a vote.

The scope of this request is limited only to those ballots undertaken for enterprise agreements which were proposed to take effect after 30 June 2014.

The document shall describe the data given to the ballot agent. For example, employee name, employee identification number, employee email address, etc. I exclude the data for specific employees here; I am only after the 'meta-data'.

If it assists you to treat this as an administrative request for information I encourage you to do so. Otherwise, please consider this a formal FOI request.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith

FOI, Productivity Commission

Dear Mr Smith

I refer to your email below.

The data provided to the ballot agent for Productivity Commission ballots is: 'employee number'; 'full name'; ' email address' (or where no 'email address', then 'postal address').

As suggested in your request, this information is provided under administrative access and outside the formal FOI Act request process.

Yours sincerely

Keston Clarke
FOI Co-ordinator
