Reclaim Sydney Uni Senate: Vote for alumni who care about staff and students
Many at Sydney University were alarmed by the excessive intervention of corporate University Senators in the negotiations of our recent Enterprise Agreement. This was yet another sign that corporate interests dominate Senate at the expense of quality education and democratic representation.
Staff and students believe that Sydney University Senate should represent a broader community committed to educational advancement, rather than narrow sectional interests.
NTEU calls on all graduates of Sydney University to vote for candidates we believe will help redress this balance. We need University Senators who will actively engage in Senate meetings and promote the education-focused mission of the University.
RECLAIM THE SENATE
We endorse the following set of candidates (in this order).
1) Verity Firth
2) Catriona Menzies-Pike
3) Barbara Reed
4) Andrew West
5) Toby Fattore
Ballot papers are being posted on Wednesday 9 October, so if you want to vote you need to make sure the University has your current address details. You can update your details by:
- ringing the Development Office on (61) (02) 9036 9222, or
- emailing the Development Office at email@example.com, or
- updating details on the website at http://sydney.edu.au/alumni/contact-us/
We ask you to share this candidate with your contacts and via social media.
