To all NTEU Members
Support Your Colleagues at UNSW and Macquarie
An Urgent Message from the NTEU General Secretary
Around 150 NTEU members have imposed bans on the transmission of examination results at the University of New South Wales and Macquarie University. NTEU Branch negotiators have spent more than two years trying to secure Collective Agreements which guarantee competitive pay rises, job security, reductions in contract and casual employment and the restoration of employment standards stripped away by the Howard Governments Higher Education Workplace Relations Requirements (HEWRRs) and WorkChoices.
Urgent solidarity needed
I urge every NTEU member to provide direct support to our colleagues. Their fight is your fight for employment standards which reflect the professionalism and productivity of all Australian university staff.
With your support our Macquarie and UNSW colleagues can win this dispute. You can make a big difference:
If you are an NTEU member at UNSW or Macquarie, any donation you make will be set aside to specifically support your local colleagues imposing bans. Money from the whole NTEU membership will be evenly distributed to members imposing the bans at both universities.
