Industrial Action: 20 August 2013

 As you are probably aware by now, some academic university staff are taking industrial action this Tuesday, 20 August, as part of their continuing campaign for a fair enterprise bargaining agreement. This will be the sixth day of strike action this year, and the first serious industrial action at the University in over ten years. USU supports the campaign led by the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) and the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU), which is focused on negotiating a fair enterprise agreement for the future including leave entitlements, intellectual freedom with regards to research, and the right to unionise. We will be providing food to picketing NTEU, CPSU and USU members on the day.

RALLY: the National Union of Students is holding a rally at UTS at 1pm outside the Broadway campus. The rally will protest the government’s $2.3 billion dollars of cuts to universities.

USU is committed to cultivating an inclusive and cultural experience on campus, and although our programs and services do not directly influence the educational standard offered at the University, we are committed to providing our student community with a safe campus and the highest quality student experience.
