Alison Barnes returned as NTEU president

While the poll is not declared her opponent concedes

Dr Barnes has a second term as president of the National Tertiary Education Union with rival candidate Fahad Ali conceding yesterday.

The success of Dr Barnes running mates Damian Cahill (running for general secretary) and Gabe Gooding (assistant sec) appears assured.

Mr Ali says his ticket took 30 per cent of the poll.
