Uni Sydney expects scheduled strike to happen

Provost Annamarie Jagose tells staff she wants no repeat of what she says was “ harassment, intimidation, and assault experienced by some of our staff and students, whether picketing or seeking to come to campus” during National Tertiary Education Union strikes last week.

Professor Jagose adds that the university will be open but, “ recommends that staff who can perform their duties remotely—including academic staff who are able to switch their classes to on-line delivery—do so in order to minimise student and staff disruption.”

The strike relates to enterprise bargaining now underway.
