‘Tis the season to be serious

At Uni Sydney the National Tertiary Education Union will hold a festive action tomorrow

There will be, “a little of the usual (speeches and chants) and a whole lotta fun (panto, trivia, bon bons and other Christmas surprises).” At least the comrades don’t class “speeches and chants” as fun.

But they like their frivolity serious at the union, “it’s time to celebrate a year of courageous fighting, but also to tell management, as we head into bargaining next year, that we haven’t given up, we’re not going away, and we will not be silenced.”

Outgoing VC Michael Spence must regret leaving.
