TASMANIAN INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
Industrial Relations Act 1984
The Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners of Australia
Cancellation of Registration
REASONS FOR DECISION
This application was made by the Registrar under Section 68(1)(a)(ii) of the Act and sought the cancellation of the registration of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners of Australia, Tasmanian Branch (the ASC&J).
The Registrar advised that the application arose out of union amalgamations which had occurred in the jurisdiction of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (the AIRC).
An exhibit was produced which confirmed that, on 27 November 1992, Deputy President Williams of the AIRC, pursuant to subsection 253Q(3)(c) of the Australian Industrial Relations Act 1988, deregistered the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners of Australia (and some other unions) as a consequence of its amalgamation with the Federation of Industrial, Manufacturing and Engineering Employees (D No. 20013 of 1991).
The Registrar sought for the cancellation of registration of the ASC&J to be operative from the same date, 27 November 1992.
It was noted that, following the cancellation of its registration, the ASC&J should present its Certificate of Registration for cancellation.
The Registrar pointed out that the Act at the present time was silent as to amalgamations of organisations and as a result the Commission has to cater for such occasions in the best manner possible, however awkward.
The ASC&J appeared and supported the application.
We endorse the submissions presented by the Registrar and the ASC&J and accordingly the cancellation of registration of the ASC&J is hereby made operative from 27 November 1992.
It will be left to individual members of the Commission to delete the name of the ASCU from the parties and persons bound clauses of the awards in which it appears.
