A UWA leaflet against the NTEU stated that the UWA Vice-Chancellor and the NTEU National Directorate had “sold the amendment to the company agreement to avoid job cuts”, but that the clauses of the EAV explicitly allowed “forced dismissals, the protection of the persons occasioned being weak and not applying, unless these casual workers can demonstrate a “reasonable expectation” of the work in progress. which, in practice, is practically impossible.” You say that the proposed variant results in a 10% pay cut of up to 247 $US per two weeks for some employees and a pay cut of up to US$6420 per year for professional employees. The proposed amendment provides two weeks of paid COVID-19 leave for all employees and ensures income assistance for all permanent employees laid off due to the effects of COVID-19 (employees of public universities have been excluded from the federal government`s JobKeeper program). It also postpones a salary increase for January 2021 for six months and removes the payment of the annual vacation charge to employees this year. On June 26, all staff members will vote on the proposal to vary the UWA Academic, Professional and General Staff Agreement 2017, which covers salaries and conditions. Many of the UWA senior managers responsible for the design and implementation of the renewal plan have left their roles at the university. Professor Paul Johnson (Vice-Chancellor), Sandra Ventre (Director of Human Resources), Paula Langley (Executive Director of Human Resources), Pranay Lodhiya (Executive Director of Corporate Services) and Michael Chaney (Chancellor) all left. Shortly after the NTEU filed the dispute over the occasional payment, it was announced that Vice Chancellor Dawn Freshwater would also leave the UWA next year to take the reins of the University of Auckland. NTEU members opposed to the EAV fear that the treaty change will not save jobs, but shows management that workers are easy goals. You have produced a video that promotes case no.

The dispute was submitted on the basis of a campaign “Staff working conditions are learning conditions for students”, which united the efforts of staff and students to improve teaching and learning standards by improving the employment conditions of casual workers. Following concerns expressed by the UWA Academic Advisory Committee about these underpayments, the work of these NTEU members, previously referred to as “tutorials” in the first semester unit sketches, was transformed into “Other Necessary Academic Activities” during the second semester. Just as the NTEU was trying to run a campaign and a quarrel over it, Professor Paul Johnson, then vice-chancellor, announced the “renewal plan” and his intention to radically restructure faculties, service delivery systems and his intention to lose 300 employees.
