The NTEU and CPSU are taking further strike action beginning at midnight on Tuesday 14 May. The University of Sydney Union supports the NTEU’s campaign for a fair enterprise bargaining agreement and hopes that the matter will be resolved soon.

The national protest also coincides with the Federal Government’s announcement to cut around $2.3 billion from universities and student support to help fund planned reforms to the school system. These latest cuts come on top of a $1 billion cut to research programs announced late last year. If these new saving measures are passed by the Parliament, they will have a serious impact on the sector and the University of Sydney in particular.

The University of Sydney Union believes that cuts to tertiary funding will be detrimental to the delivery of the student experience, and we will be working hard with the university to convince both the Australian Government and the Opposition of the seriousness of our concerns.
