Some of the staff at the University of Sydney have organised a petition calling on the University Senate to intervene to protect jobs at the University.
The University of Sydney Senate meets next Monday. And it is the intention of the petition organisers, that the petition be presented to Senate Fellows for that meeting.
If you are concerned about the job cuts at Sydney University, if you think that they will negatively impact the student experience, increase workloads and threaten the University's reputation please sign the petition: Urge the University of Sydney Senate to Stop the "Change Plan" and Job Cuts
Feel free to circulate this petition through your networks and among the academic community generally.•
The National Tertiary Education Union will fight deep job cuts at the University of Sydney, the University of NSW and Macquarie University, announced by management in recent days.
Job cuts on the table?
The NTEU believes that University of Sydney management are planning to make significant cuts to staffing levels. Management has not denied this. In fact, in their responses to press enquiries, management have confirmed that there would be “a reduction in expenditure” next year.
Recently, the NTEU wrote to the Vice Chancellor demanding urgent clarfication of university management's plans. The NTEU is meeting with university management on Monday 21 November to discuss their proposals.
We reject any rationale for staffing cuts. All of us know, more staff and better resourced staff are needed to ensure a high quality student experience and top level research output.
Members condemn university plans
At a recent meeting of NTEU members, a motion was passed denouncing these cuts as unnecessary. Members believe any cuts are likely to impact negatively on research and the education of students and have a detrimental impact on staff morale and wellbeing.
All staff meeting: Wednesday 30 November
All staff are invited to come to a meeting on Wednesday 30 November in Carslaw 273 from 1-2. We will hear a report of the meeting with University management and discuss our response to management's proposals.
