Brisbane battles in enterprise bargaining

“Everyone is still ‘doing more with less’. All three universities are posting surpluses and building war chests while staff are feeling overworked and unrewarded” says National Tertiary Education Union’s Michael McNally

At Griffith U, National Tertiary Education Union members are voting through until today week on taking industrial action.

At QUT, the Fair Work Commission has approved a vote (to occur next week).

And Uni Queensland  NTEU members have voted, as per the Fair Work Act, to take industrial action.

The claims at all three involve, “ secure work, reasonable workloads and a decent pay rise,” Mr McNally says.
