Industrial action on Uni Queensland admin restructure

The campus union says the plan does not meet code

Uni Queensland management wants to refurb its facilities team, reorganising operations and abolishing 27 jobs, while creating 30 new ones. The plan is to have its proposed structure in place by February (CMM June 25).

Maybe, maybe not. The campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union is certainly less than impressed. President Andrew Bonnell says the proposal breaches the university’s enterprise agreement requirement that a restructure identify work now done which will either not be required or be transferred to other staff. “Many staff who face losing their job were unable to identify who would be doing their work should the restructure go ahead,” he says.

The NTEU has notified management of a dispute.
