Further Industrial Action

On Wednesday 5 June a number of university staff will be involved in a 24 hour strike. This strike is part of an ongoing campaign the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) and Community and Public Sector Union for a fair enterprise bargaining agreement.

The university management and staff unions have been negotiating for a new enterprise bargaining agreement since August last year. The unions have achieved some concessions, but have chosen to strike again because they believe that management is not negotiating in good faith. The unions are seeking basic conditions including leave entitlements, funding for career development, and the right to union office space on campus. More information on the EBA campaign can be found here: http://www.nteu.org.au/sydney/article/Compare-the-pair-14559

USU supports the NTEU in its negotiation for a fair enterprise agreement and the right to a safe campus for all staff and students.
