NSW Goes it Alone


Saturday, 15 December, 2012


SPASA Queensland, SPASA South Australia, SPASA Victoria & SPASA Western Australia continue to stand as one in our opposition to the formation of the Swimming Pool & Spa Alliance of Australia. 

The four States strongly urge the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of NSW to abandon their divisive and deceptive “national alliance” concept and return to having ongoing meaningful and fully participatory dialogue with all five states.

Unfortunately NSW has failed to involve any of the other state SPASA bodies in pursuing their national agenda. In order to ensure SPASA members’ interests remain a priority Legal advisors, acting on behalf of the above four State Associations wrote to NSW.

Our communication highlighted our concerns and requested that they cease their actions and resume participation in good faith as a member of the true national body, Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia Ltd.

NSW responded denying the grounds of any of our genuine concerns, they rejected outright all the issues raised and failed to indicate any spirit of co-operation or provide any of the undertakings that were sought by the other four States.

These matters are of such concern to the four State Associations that it is now necessary to seek assistance from the courts. Consequently, an injunction will be sought to prevent NSW continuing to assume it can legitimately act as the SPASA national body and operate in all states and effectively replace all state bodies as we currently know them.

For further information contact your local state SPASA office.
