Staff set to leave UNE, more will follow

UNE will accept 138 voluntary redundancy applications, as part of the restructure announced by VC Brigid Heywood (CMM July 30)

The split so far is 46 academic and 92 professional staff. This is expected to save $18.8m. But management wants more and has called a second VR round with a $5-$6m target. Applications close October 26, as do consultations on the new admin structure.

Management will commence consultation in October on a new, hours-based academic workload model, for full implementation first term next year. This appears to be as per the recent enterprise agreement, (CMM January 20).
