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.

It's time 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 the team at
