Casuals not signed at RMIT

There was a flap last week when people noticed there are not enough staff to teach second semester courses in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies

Casuals, who do much of the teaching had no contracts and the word from on-high was no sessional in such a state could teach. At least until word descended from even higher was that casuals could start teaching before contracts were sorted. In cases where casuals decide to wait until they have it in writing classes will be cancelled.

It’s not that RMIT is short of the readies. Word is with field-trips off more students are signing up for classes that need casuals.
