Faculty of Arts change proposal
The JCC met on 11 April 2012 with Professor Susan Dodds as well as UTAS representatives to consider the recent Faculty of Arts change proposal. Whilst the proposed 3 school structure was not debated (and it is the NTEU opinion that this is a Faculty decision to be made by all Faculty staff) at the meeting NTEU representatives expressed a very strong view that there was insufficient information provided within the Change Proposal document – especially in regards to the structure and use of existing Professional staff.
We do not think it right that staff have been asked to make informed comment on the change proposal without important or comprehensive information. We have a number of concerns about the refusal to release the KPMG Report and the failure to provide adequate information to both Professional and Academic Staff about the significant effects of the proposed changes, including job security and change of job roles.
Below is the most recent letter sent to the Dean of the Faculty of Arts requesting further information for the benefit of staff.
