NTEU La Trobe Branch Committee sends a message of solidarity and support to University of Sydney staff who have conducted a 24 hour strike and have just now completed a successful 48 hour strike.
It is the day after the 48-hour strike at Sydney University and I’m reflecting on the strength and passion of NTEU members.
We care deeply about the future of the higher education sector. This is why addressing insecure employment is a key claim for NTEU members in this round of bargaining.
It is also why the decision to take industrial action is never made lightly. Only after careful consideration—and following very poor response from management—do we take action.
I want to share with you an inspiring video made by Sydney University staff, so you can hear first hand why they decided to take action to protect the university.
Dear Michael - An open letter to the Vice Chancellor
This campaign is not just about Sydney University—these are issues we are facing right across the sector.
Because of this, I’m asking you to share this video with your friends, colleagues and networks. Help us distribute this very clear message: As staff, we are the people building universities for the 21st century—in practice as well as in imagination.
You can view this video, and the open letters they are based on, on our Sydney University Branch website.

Members wanting to place the trend of rampant managerialism in an intellectual context will get a lot from reading a recent pithy book chapter by one of our long-term members, Larry Smith. It’s entitled ‘Leadership Constraints and Restraints under the “New Managerialism”’.
