Casuals and COVID

Anastasia Kanjere is running for general secretary of the National Tertiary Education Union on the A New NTEU ticket. She tweeted Wednesday, “huge shout out to the subject coordinators I know who have secretly taught for casuals and told them to falsify their timesheets because it’s the only way said casuals could get paid COVID leave.”

CMM asked her for comment and she replied, “I have heard this from more than three subject coordinators at more than two universities.”
