NTEU intervention ensures payment for 65 staff
Last year, restructures resulted in HR, Finance and ITS staff being centralised in to “hubs”. The transition was poorly organised and in one instance the disappearance of Faculty HR staff in to the “hubs” meant that over sixty-five contracts were not returned to central HR – meaning that sixty-five staff members were about to find - without warning - that they had not been paid.
Fortunately, an alert member notified the NTEU Branch office that this was the case, and the NTEU was able to negotiate immediate off-line payments, so that staff received their pay a day late rather than not at all.
If you have any stories about disruptions caused by the restructures send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the Branch Office on 9905 4110.
