South Coast Labor Council Battle Heads for Court
Unions backing a challenge to the South Coast Labor Council leader Paul Matters are considering legal action to have the ballot overturned.
They have written to SCLC president Mike Dwyer citing alleged irregularities in the voting process and requesting that a fresh ballot be run.
Supporters of CPSU official Arthur Rorris walked out of the ballot on Wednesday night, claiming irregularities including the credentialing of voters.
While Matters is claiming is victory, the Rorris camps says there's a long way to go before the issue is resolved.
Matters wouldn't discuss the allegations with Workers Online.
"I'm pleased to be re-elected as secretary of the South Coast Labor Council and I'll be working very hard over the next term," he said.
