Meanwhile in a once and (hopefully) future Australia QUT plans a restructure
VP Admin Leanne Harvey proposes to reorganise administrative services. Operating units with similar functions are now independent and this flat organisation structure “is problematic and not conductive to divisional efficiency.”
The proposal takes 14 independent units and combines them into eight portfolios. But what it does not involve is job losses.
“There are no proposed redundancies and all current fixed-term contracts will be honoured. The proposal is not about cost savings but building on the good work that has already been achieved in the division.”
They like restructures at QUT that stay out of the Fair Work Commission.
