For too long Victorian higher education providers have underpaid and overlooked the contributions of casual staff. Talented and committed SuperCasuals are delivering the bulk of the teaching loads and yet have systematically been denied job security.
It's time for the system to change!
The Victorian Government recently launched the Labour Hire and Insecure Work Inquiry to come to terms with the experience of exploited workers. NTEU has made a submission to the Inquiry and is calling upon the Government to enact legislation that will compel public higher education institutions to give greater job security to hardworking casual staff.
Yet to make certain that our message is heard WE NEED YOUR VOICE!
On Wednesday 10 February 2016, NTEU will be leading a delegation of casuals to present at the Inquiry’s public hearing in Melbourne. Your stories are both powerful and compelling and speak to the hardships and challenges that confront those who are insecurely employed.
If you are willing to tell your story then please contact Campaigns Officer Dustin Halse at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to register your interest.
Let’s send a collective message to the Victorian Government that it’s time to support casual and insecure workers.
