Back to business

As COVID-19 kicked in last year, universities, including La Trobe U, U Tas and UWA struck deals with the National Tertiary Education Union to protect some jobs in return for workers accepting temporary cuts to various employment conditions. As approved by the Fair Work Commission, terms  were to “lessen the number of job losses that would otherwise occur.”

The agreements ran to the end of June. This month all three have announced proposals for job reducing restructures.
