The latest edition of the NTEU’s member magazine, Advocate (vol. 29, no. 1) is now online.
In this edition we highlight the Senate Inquiry into Job Security and the Senate Inquiry into Unlawful Underpayment, including a number of NTEU members’ strong and impassioned statements to the Inquiries. Una McIlvenna gives us her story in 'Leaving Academia: The harm & heartbreak of precarity' and we cover the campaign against illegal piece-rates at La Trobe.
We cover resignations from the ARC College of Experts; our opposition to the Religious Discrimination Bill; our Federal Budget submission; and how the Union is standing up for international students.
We have news on flood disaster relief for members in Qld & NSW and how the pandemic has adversely affected Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander employment.
Looking further afield, we report on Sean Turnell’s Myanmar imprisonment; the exodus hitting Hong Kong universities; the massive teacher strikes in Iran; and how UK universities are at breaking point.
We hope you enjoy the magazine!
