A price for more of the same at Uni Queensland

Management wants staff to wait for a new deal – union members ask what is in it for them

With enterprise bargaining beginning at Uni Queensland management is proposing a 12-month moratorium on negotiating a new deal, “provide staff with greater stability at a time of uncertainty,”(CMM July 21).

But the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union thinks there is nothing uncertain about the university’s finances. It had a look at the numbers in the recent annual report and suggests, the university, “is in robust financial health.”

Members appear to agree the university is not doing it tough. A rank and file meeting yesterday decided that the university should provide job security measures as a basis for negotiations on leaving enterprise bargaining until mid ’22.
