My super is with UniSuper—how can I take action?

The UniSuper Divest team believes a successful divestment campaign will have an ongoing impact on the supply chains of the detention system: not just through individual divestment, but through the collective action of fund members to urge UniSuper to divest from detention, and to subsequently screen further investment decisions for connections to detention.

Contact UniSuper Board members to urge divestment

The directors on the UniSuper Board have a special capacity to affect the fund’s investment policy and decisions.

As a UniSuper member, one effective and direct action you can take is to directly contact the Board by phone, email or conventional mail to call for divestment.

Contact your representative on the UniSuper Consultative Committee

Each university has two employee representatives on UniSuper’s Consultative Committee (one for academic staff and one for general staff), as well as two employer representatives. The employee representatives are your colleagues and one of their main tasks is to nominate the four employee Directors on the UniSuper Board. Let them know to communicate your views on detention divestment to the employee UniSuper Board Directors.

For help determining the Consultative Committee representatives at your institution, please email the UniSuper Divest team.
