Arbitration & Conciliation Committee (ACC)

The Arbitration & Conciliation Committee is a three person committee elected at each ACT Greens Annual General Meeting for one year.


The responsibilities of this Committee include:

  • oversight of dispute resolution within the Party

  • investigation of complaints about members

When a matter is referred to the Arbitration & Conciliation Committee (ACC), the committee operates as a three person investigative tribunal which follows principles of procedural fairness to make a determination about a matter based on the balance of evidence. It has no executive powers to apply sanctions but it makes recommendations to the ACT Greens Management Committee to do so.

The ACC is a member of the Council of Australasian Tribunals.

Matters that may be brought to the Arbitration & Conciliation Committee

  1. A grievance or dispute brought to the Member Support Team mediators which cannot be resolved.
    Where the dispute involves allegations of serious illegal activities, the matter will be promptly referred directly to the Arbitration & Conciliation Committee without recourse to the parties.

  2. A complaint raised about a member or volunteer of the ACT Greens.
    Such cases may be raised by a member of the ACT Greens or by someone outside the ACT Greens including allegations of serious illegal activities, or activities condemned or forbidden by the Australian Greens Charter, the Constitution, By-laws or the Volunteer Code of Conduct.

All Arbitration & Conciliation Committee members have current ACT Government Working With Vulnerable People General Registration.
