Senator BISHOP -Mr President,I would like to correct some union membership figures I gave in answer to a question by Senator Durack in respect of those unions operating in the Overseas Telecommunications Commission. The numbers are small but I think that they should be corrected. I think I said that the Australian Association of Professional Engineers had only 20 members. I meant the Professional Officers Association which, as far as I am aware, has 16 members. That was the organisation which opposed merging with OTC. The Australian Association of Professional Engineers has a membership of about 85; PREI has 1,266; the Administrative and Clerical Officers Association has 140; and the Association of Architects, Engineers, Surveyors and Draughtsmen has a membership of 35. That is the membership of the main unions involved out of a total of 2,067 staff members.

Suggest corrections
