  8. Principled advocate and quiet achiever (Advocate 24 02)

    Posted 10 July 2017 by Grahame McCulloch (NTEU National Office)

    By Grahame McCulloch, General Secretary

    Adrian Ryan, foundation Secretary of NTEU NSW Division, died in early June. His passing marks a generational moment in the history of the Union. Adrian was representative of the activists who built the foundations of academic unionism in the 1970s.

    Adrian was a highly significant figure in the politics and industrial relations of the university sector from the late 1970s onwards at local, State and national levels. He was a fearless and principled advocate for the interests of university staff and the university sector more generally with a sharp intellect, insightful tactics and measured pragmatism when necessary.

    With over seventy participants, this year’s biennial NTEU National Women’s Conference was the biggest for years.

    The Union’s policy is that all our industrial, organising and policy work must be scrutinised through the gender lens. We should not tolerate so called ‘unintended consequences’ and ‘unconscious biases’. So it was disappointing that delegates reported having to often put and keep ‘women on the agenda’ even within our own meetings and activities.
