Job Security – Conversion to Ongoing Work

Our campaign on inductions and training was a great start. However, we’ve listened to you and what casuals across Deakin are telling us is that job security is the biggest issue.

All staff deserve job security. Casually employed staff are what hold our universities together – without us, Deakin would stop running. Casualisation negatively impacts the university, employees and students. It is past time that our contributions were recognised. It is time for secure work.

We know we can win the right for conversion into ongoing work for academic and general staff – indeed, this is an important part of our Log of Claims in the current Enterprise Bargaining negotiations. This means the right to convert casual work into secure part-time and full-time roles. However, to do this we need to build on the momentum and success of our SuperCasuals campaign at Deakin.

To win this campaign, we need you!

We need you to complete the form below, indicating your support for our campaign to fight for the right to conversion for casual staff.

We need you to RSVP (via the form below) to mass meetings we’ve organised for February 22nd and 23rd, prior to T1, at Burwood and Waurn Ponds.

We need you to join the NTEU, if you have yet to do so. Casual membership of the NTEU starts at $27.50, roughly $1 per week. The more members we have, the better our chances of success.

Our Deakin SuperCasuals campaign has been a great success so far. Join us to be part of a positive lasting change for casually employed staff at Deakin.
