Industrial action at UoQ

Union members at the University of Queensland have voted to take protected industrial action over the only significant outstanding issue in long-running enterprise bargaining. “After nearly 12 months of meetings, UQ management continues to drag the chain when it comes to job security,“ National Tertiary Education Union branch president Andrew Bonnell says.

The union wants management to adopt its proposals on casualisation and “over-reliance on precarious fixed-term contracts.”

Management and union appear to have reached terms on what were seen as especially significant issues, notably pay and discipline procedures.
