    This year, it’s time for action on campuses. NTEU with NUS and CAPA will use Bluestocking Week to highlight the importance of women speaking out and sharing our stories and views.

    We need to hear the stories of the women in our universities as we "cross the line" and challenge attitudes that seek to restrict women's freedom and opportunities.  In short, we want to hear diverse and contemporary ‘bluestocking’ experiences.

    We can create a human tapestry that describes the experiences of women who work and study in our universities, as women ‘cross the line’ and challenge attitudes that seek to restrict our freedom and opportunities.

    We want to hear from all women in the university community:

    • students,
    • academics
    • professional and general staff
    • graduates
    • friends

    Tell us your stories of the value of education and opportunity, and what you are doing to challenge the status

  9. University funding cuts cause severe indigestion for government (SMH 14.7.14)

    Posted 14 July 2014 by Paul Clifton (NTEU National Office)

    Crossbench senators with an ear to popular opinion could become even less co-operative when university cuts come before them, with new polling showing the Coalition’s changes are poison in voter-land.

    Extensive automated phone polling across 23 federal electorates taking in all states has found cuts in federal funding and changes to allow increased fees, higher loan charges, and access to limited federal funding by non-university course providers, have not gone over well with households.

    Sixty-nine per cent of those polled said they opposed “significant increases in fees” and 65 per cent said they opposed a 20 per cent funding
