Nothing casual about UTS staff count

If the National Tertiary Education Union thinks 75 per cent of the UTS workforce are casuals or on fixed term contracts (CMM yesterday) the comrades can’t count, a staffer suggests. To get that number they would have to include students working part-time for the university and seasonal staff, contractors and consultants. As for academics, many fractional teaching staff do it as an extension of their professional practise. The casual crisis is more apparent, at least to union officials, than real, this UTS veteran suggests.
