Management has commissioned an external examination of processes, “including for casual staff”
It follows the introduction of human resource system Workday over the last 12 months and a “casual academic work and pay review” by a staff group including Deputy Provost Tim Dunne. Its initial report, which will be provided to staff, is expected before year end.
A National Tertiary Education Union report by Victoria Bladen and colleagues has separately cited dozens of examples of classes and activities, with times and date and academic units, where people believe they were underpaid, (CMM September 22).
The university advises the introduction of Workday and the external review, “reflect UQ’s ongoing commitment to invest in platforms to ensure UQ staff continue to be paid fairly and consistently.”
The review will complete in 2022.
