  7. Save our Jobs, Save our Uni Petition

    Save our Jobs, Save our University
    We the undersigned staff, students and community members are deeply concerned about the proposal to cut 540 professional staff positions at the University of Melbourne, and call on the Vice Chancellor, Glyn Davis to listen to the voice of the University community, who oppose these job cuts.
     
    We are deeply concerned that that the University so far has provided little rationale for the necessity of the job cuts on this scale, and are ignoring the feedback of committed staff who know that these cuts will hurt staff and students.
     
    Professional staff are the support network of any university. If we want to continue to deliver and support quality teaching and research at the University of Melbourne, and improve the way we do these things, we need our professional staff, who are the heart of the University.
     
    We know redundancies result in increased workloads, uncertainty and staff demoralisation, and will not improve the service that the University delivers. The University of Melbourne is Australia’s number 1 university because of its dedicated and committed staff. We call upon the Vice Chancellor to use the existing skills, knowledge and expertise of professional staff to innovate and create positive change, instead of letting go of committed people with valuable knowledge and experience in the tertiary education sector.

  9. Budget a shocker for Indigenous Australians

    Posted 8 July 2014 by Celeste Liddle (Indigenous)

    The Federal Budget contained a number of nasty surprises for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Cuts were expected, and pre-empted to a certain degree, but when the news came through that a total of $500 million had been cut from essential Indigenous services, the shock in the community was apparent.

    In particular, equity measures within Indigenous education, health and legal services have been the hardest hit and there seems little opportunity for response. In short, we have a huge fight ahead in a hostile
