La Trobe Timesheets & Payslips Supercasuals Campaign.
Massive Win! Casuals securing better working conditions!
At the beginning of this year the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) launched a campaign to fix the Hardcopy Pay Slips and Paper Timesheets mess at La Trobe University. La Trobe Uni casuals lamented that they were doing hours of unpaid work submitting timesheets and picking up archaic hardcopy timesheets. In response, nearly 100 La Trobe NTEU casual members collectively ran a campaign calling upon the University to implement a 21st century pay system. This NTEU action led to the successful implementation of an electronic pay slip system for all casuals on 29 May 2015. It has also led to the current implementation of an electronic timesheet system for all casuals in semester 2. Make no mistake, it is the leadership and commitment of NTEU casual members that has brought these matters to the University’s attention. We thank all those casuals who have collectively acted to bring about this positive change.
