Get Connected to your UWS Casual and Research Network
With over one-third of employees being casual workers, tertiary education ranks as one of the most casualised indstries in Australia. Casual employees in our industry are frequently exploited, underpaid, overworked and left with few avenues for assistance or redress.
It is therefore important that you are aware of your rights and entitlements under the current UWS Enterprise Agreements for Academic and General Staff. It is also a good idea to join the National Tertiary Education Industry Union (NTEU) because the union is experienced in enforcing these conditions and ensuring that casuals get a fair go.
If you are a casual staff member and want to join, go to the 'join' section of this site
