UNSW union wants to outlaw forced redundancies

Last year was tough for staff at UNSW, with a restructure generating professional staff job losses and accompanying anguish. The campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union wants to stop a repeat, making information on workplace change a priority its claims for a new enterprise agreement.

The union demands no forced redundancies, a review committee for professional staff, “when redundancy is alleged,” and “that there be extensive and genuine consultation prior to the release of change proposals, and that this consultation process include the provision to staff of evidence.”
