Union ideas for the Accord

The National Tertiary Education Union asked members for the three things that most worry them at work.

It’s for the union’s submission to the O’Kane Accord. They responded,

* insecure work (both casual and fixed term)

* escalating workloads

* university governance

The union now wants to know what members think about a National Higher Education Future Fund, “designed to reduce insecure work and cement the long-term sustainability of the sector.

The idea is to, “provide public universities with grants to address insecure work and workloads, as well as future-proofs the sector against further global shocks” that and, improve teaching and research and deal with “workload intensification”
