NTEU Members' Bulletin
I am writing to inform you of an upcoming members' meeting on the latest White Paper, an NTEU election forum and a refugee rally this weekend.
White Paper and the University's Strategic Directions
The Branch has set a members' meeting to discuss the White Paper. The White Paper is being released this week. There has been lots of speculation as to what the White Paper contains and lots of talk about the future academic structure for the University. The missing element of all this is the questions of staff support, workloads and job security. Hopefully these issues will be properly addressed in the White Paper. The NTEU encourages members to attend the Vice-Chancellor's meeting on Wednesday of this week. We have called the NTEU meeting for Wednesday 11 August to get your feed back on the White Paper. If you are unable to make the meeting and wish to send us comments please do so. The next meeting of the Management and Staff Consultative Committee where we meet with the management is set for 18 August.
