Rumoured job cuts at Sydney University
Yesterday, the NTEU wrote to the Vice Chancellor of Sydney University seeking an urgent meeting regarding rumours of widespread redundancies. We called on management to either deny the persistent rumours or provide staff with information about their plans.
We have had quite a good media response to the story, and university management's initial reaction is in today's Australian. Of particular concern to us is that the "spokesman for the university" did not deny the rumours.
