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

    La Trobe University Unpaid Work Campaign Launch Party!

    Are you a casual academic staff working at La Trobe University?Are you expected to pull more hours than you’re paid for out of a hat? To combat the rise of unpaid work and to have casual staff members paid properly and get recognised for the valuable work we perform, NTEU has recently started an Unpaid Work campaign at La Trobe University. We’re excited to invite you to celebrate the launch of this very important campaign. You don’t have to be an NTEU member to attend, all casual academic staff working at La Trobe University are invited. Attendees will also go in a draw to win a Red Hill Estate Heathcote Shiraz. Come and meet other casual academic staff members, listen to their experiences and share your stories in this fun event. Drinks and food provided. Please RSVP for catering purposes here.  We are also setting up Unpaid Work Pop-Office at Bundoora and Bendigo campuses on the same day of the event. If you cannot attend the campaign launch party or want to discuss about any work issues, you can visit us at the pop-up office at 'The Agora' from 12:30 to 1:30pm in Bundoora and at the 'Student Union' building from 12:30 to 1:30pm in Bendigo. The issue of unpaid work can only be addressed through collective campaigning. Together we are stronger and we can win! Not a member yet? Join here.
