Back to University of Wollongong

NTEU action in line with members' motion

Posted 20 May 2011 by Anne Maguire (University of Wollongong)

In our most recent members’ meetings, members told us they have had enough, and the lack of movement from UOW management in finalising an Academic Staff Agreement was no longer to be tolerated, we listened.

We went back to the claims members endorsed at the beginning of this process and using those, plus feedback we have received along the way, we have drafted an Agreement. We have sent this to management. We have also requested four days to be set aside for intensive bargaining over the next fortnight. We have told them members have had enough.

Here is the accompanying letter which summarises the issues we regard as outstanding, sent to Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor, John Patterson yesterday afternoon.

You need to come to the meeting on 1 June to hear how they respond and to have your say when we make decisions about what action we will be taking.
