  6. If you own a phone, read this - Australian Unions telephone town hall

    Posted 9 July 2013 by Genevieve Kelly (NSW Division)

    NTEU members want to raise the profile of higher education issues during this Federal election campaign.
    Town Hall meetings have long given us the ability to come together and raise issues as a community.  However, the union movement is now too big and spread out to always meet face-to-face.
    The good news is that Australian unions are developing new ways to make sure our movement can get together to discuss issues.  They are diving head first into the future and opening the virtual Town Hall doors far and wide. Wherever you are in Australia, if you've got a phone, you'll be able to participate in tele-town halls next week.  
    I encourage NTEU members to join the meeting on Wednesday discussing Government cuts, and to raise issues about higher education funding.

    Australian Unions “Telephone Town Hall”

    Topic: Public Sector cuts and Government Austerity

    Wednesday 10th July 2013

    Time: 7pm – 8pm, via teleconference

    Hosted by Corinne Grant, participants will hear from ACTU President Ged Kearney, Secretary Dave Oliver and a handful of special guests as they talk about the issues affecting working Australians, what's at stake this election and what we can do, together, to shape its outcome.  Following the discussion, you will have the opportunity to join a speakers' list and ask questions via your phone's keypad.

  10. Happy May Day—join us on Sunday to highlight union achievements and protest cuts to university funding

    Posted 1 May 2013 by Genevieve Kelly (NSW Division)

    Happy May Day to all NTEU members! May Day is a celebration of the achievements and continuing struggles of the Union movement. On this day, and in the days following, Unionists from all sectors will come together to show solidarity with each other and the campaigns we’re involved in.

    For the NTEU, this means working with other unionists to highlight our Uni Cuts, Dumb Cuts campaign.

    As you know, NTEU is campaigning vigorously against cuts to university funding announced by the federal government. Today, full-page advertisements have appeared in major newspapers signed by over 1000 university professors and associate professors supporting our campaign.

    In NSW, NTEU has been working with the broader movement to revitalise May Day and emphasise the important role unions play in the community. It has also been a fantastic opportunity for us to discuss university funding with our colleagues from other unions.

    We’d like to invite all NTEU members to join us at the Sydney May Day rally on Sunday.

    We’ll be meeting at the top of Martin Place, under the NTEU flags, at 11.15. At 11.30 we will join everyone outside Parliament House, and take part in the March at 12 noon.

    This is an opportunity to have a fun day in the city with your family, support the NTEU funding cuts campaign, and show solidarity with other unions whose support we will need in the coming period.
