Are you a SuperCasual?

Do you have the powers to live off nothing for weeks on end? What about fitting 10 hours of marking into 2? Can you disappear (conveniently at the end of each university semester/trimester) and still be exceptional, committed and professional? If the answer is yes then you are a SuperCasual.

In 2015 the NTEU decided it was time to launch a range of SuperCasuals campaigns to combat the gross exploitation of casual academic staff at Victorian Universities. We believe passionately that the time has come for SuperCasuals to be treated with the dignity and respect that their work demands. Our aim is to win better working conditions for all casuals; which is exactly what we are doing.

If you want to join a current SuperCasuals campaign or if you would like to run a SuperCasuals campaign at your campus then we encourage you to contact our Campaigns Officer Dustin Halse at dhalse@nteu.org.au.

  • SwinSessionals Conversion to Secure Work Campaign

    Are you a sessional/casual academic at Swinburne Uni? Interested in securing permanent work? Read on. In December 2015, NTEU secured landmark rights for Swinburne sessional staff to apply for conversion after teaching 72 hours or more of lectures and tutorials in three consecutive years. Those rights were the culmination of four years of campaigning by sessional staff at Swinburne. We are now implementing those rights and encouraging members to join a group application for conversion. This does not involve a job application, CVs or interviews. NTEU will simply assert your right to be converted under the Enterprise Agreement. We are also taking applications as part of the campaign. NTEU will assess each application and advise members of any concerns. The more applications the better. You can apply through the online form, it takes just a few minutes to complete via this link. For all other information contact Dustin Halse on 0478 835 429 at dhalse@nteu.org.au.

    UniMelb Hands Up for Secure Work Meeting 23 August, 12.30pm.

    The vast majority of staff at the University of Melbourne are employed on a casual basis. Job security is important and that's why we are running the Hands Up for Secure Work campaign. Job Security means 17% Superannuation, paid parental leave and stronger workplace rights. For casual employees it also means career progression and respect. NTEU has recently achieved more secure employment for hundreds of union members in Victoria, and the next stop is the University of Melbourne. To date more than 150 people have signed up to the campaign. Come along to our meeting to find out how you can apply for secure work. Details Below: When: Tuesday, 23 August, 12:30-1:30pm. Where: Lower Theatre. Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences. For all other information regarding the campaign please contact the University of Melbourne branch at unimelb@nteu.org.au or Chloe Gaul on 0422 638 865.
