Less for less at CQU

The university is asking staff if they would like to work 10 per cent less hours for 10 per cent less pay

“This Expression of Interest is not an obligation to undertake a reduction in FTE, it is simply a mechanism to gauge how many people may be interested in pursuing this option,” Barbara Miller (Director People and Culture) assures staff across the university.

“This is a temporary arrangement for the 2022 calendar year and the employee will have the ability to return to their previous FTE commencing in 2023,” the university states.

Good-o, but who, learned readers ask, is going to pick up the work not done?
