No one else in the University sector is expected to stay on top of hundreds of pages of policies in their own time. It is ridiculous that Deakin University doesn’t pay casually employed staff to maintain up to date knowledge on its policies about Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), plagiarism, and University Assessment Procedures. A group of Deakin Supercasuals have responded by launching a campaign to demand that casual staff be paid for the work performed inducting, training and familiarising themselves with Deakin policies and systems. If you are a Deakin casual then we invite you to join our collective campaign--we are claiming 6 hours of pay for every participant for the time spent self-training and self-inducting. Already more than 50 casuals have joined this action--and the numbers are rising everyday. Of course, we would love as many people as possible to sign up – the more people who join the campaign the greater our ability to tackle the issue of unpaid work for casual staff at Deakin. A big thanks also to those who attended our BBQ campaign launch event at Burwood on 12 October. We’ll also be out to Geelong in coming weeks. Stay tuned to see what’s next for our campaign over T3. If you have any questions, or wish to participate in or help organise the campaign, contact Lachlan at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone on 0418 493355. You can sign up to the campaign online here.
