  5. Lies, damned lies, and statistics...

    Posted 8 October 2013 by Miranda Jamieson (Tas Division)

    Whichever way you look at the staffing statistics at the University of Tasmania, one thing does not change.  The current conditions for fixed-term and casual workers at UTAS are some of the worst in the country, and this is something that can and should change in the current negotiations for a new agreement.

    Posted 6 September 2013 by Miranda Jamieson (Tas Division)

    The NTEU can report significant progress in relation to Academic Workloads.  A sub-committee has held a number of meetings over the last month, and has prepared a clause that ensures that the Academic Workload Guidelines will be retained to protect teaching times, with agreement that research workloads will be developed over the life of the agreement.  While the clause is not completely finalized, we believe that parties are very close to agreement on this.  Thanks to Kelvin Michael and Jamie Kirkpatrick, Gary O’Donovan and Andrew Wells for their work on this clause.
