Welcome back! 2012 is going to be a big year for NTEU members at Melbourne University, Florey Institute, MU Student Union and Nation wide, with Collective Bargaining beginning later in the year. The branch committee and organisers are busy planning the first round of member’s consultation meetings in preparation for bargaining, and we are very excited to once again be working with members to achieve real outcomes in the workplace. For anyone who may be new to the NTEU, our office is located on the Parkville campus in the Old Metallurgy building. Our organisers are happy to talk through any issue in your workplace you think needs attention. You can contact the branch by phoning 8344 6828 or emailing email@example.com. We would also like to welcome two new staff members to the branch office. Bec Muratore has started work as Branch Industrial Organiser, and Clare Danaher will commence later in March as an Industrial Officer for the Branch. Clare has worked for the NTEU in a variety of different roles, and has most recently been working as the return to work officer in the Division office. Both Clare and Bec are looking forward to working with members throughout the year and hope that 2012 is a great year for all our members!
