Sessionals' Second Semester Survival Stall
Every semester, hundreds of Swinburne sessional and casual academics are paid up to eight weeks late. Semester Two is fast approaching, and, in the coldest months of the year, Swinburne sessionals will again be unpaid. Help your colleagues by donating non-perishable food and household items to the Sessionals' Second Semester Survival Stall.
BREAKING NEWS: Today, senior management refused to commit to pay sessionals on time in Second Semester.
To highlight the financial hardships experienced by sessional and casual academics at Swinburne University who are paid between 2-8 weeks late each semester, the NTEU is asking for donations of non-perishable and household goods to distribute to the huge numbers of sessional and casual academics who will not receive any pay in the first 2-8 weeks of Semester 2.
As you have been made aware, the NTEU has made a pay claim on behalf of more than 50 sessional staff for late pay and is demanding improvements to the current ineffective pay system.
Food, blankets and any other household items to assist your colleagues to survive the cold months ahead, while they struggle to pay rent, mortgages, school fees, childcare, and transport and parking costs, are urgently required.
A Sessionals’ Second Semester Survival Stall will be set up in the Atrium at the Hawthorn campus between 11:30am and 1:30pm every weekday from Monday 14th May to Friday 25th May.
Staff are also needed to run the stall, so please conatct the union and help your colleagues by volunteering for a spot on the roster.
If you want to make a donation and are unable to attend the donations stall, please call Charlie Sanders on 0431 399 110.
