NTEU survey reveals CSU staff are overworked to the point of illness
The NTEU CSU 2011 Annual Survey has returned some alarming results, revealing that 58 per cent of academics are being overworked to the point of illness. The survey also reveals that 57 per cent of academics have suffered deterioration in family relationships, due to excessive workloads and work related stress.
A staggering 94% of surveyed academics said they frequently work more than their regular weekly hours, with 87% frequently working weekends. The survey also found 58% of respondents reported teaching workloads that breach the new workload regulations contained in the CSU Enterprise Agreement.
NTEU CSU Branch has written to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) outlining some of the results and seeking the widespread teaching-related overload at CSU to be addressed as a matter of priority. You can read a copy of the letter here.
The story has been covered in the Central Western Daily and the Western Advocate. You can read the stories in the below attachment.
