Following our show of strength during RMIT Strike Week in the week leading up to Easter - the longest strike ever undertaken at RMIT University - management have returned to the bargaining table and negotiations are continuing.

But the VC, Alec Cameron, is still nowhere to be seen, continuing the hands-off leadership style that's left enterprise bargaining to meander on with no deal in sight for staff craving improved pay and conditions.

With a salary of around $1million a year, RMIT deserves better leadership from it's VC - less the absent-minded professor, just the 'absent' professor.

So we're calling on staff (and students) at RMIT to join our Vote of No Confidence in RMIT's VC.

We call upon VC Cameron to:
• Agree to a wage increase that reflects the cost of living, the workloads and the efforts of staff at RMIT
• Provide secure jobs for current RMIT casual teaching and academic employees;
• Include a numeric target for 206 FET Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employees;
• Respect the right to 17% super for all fixed term and continuing RMIT staff;
• Agree to equality of conditions for redundancy and disciplinary procedures for Higher Education and Vocational Education staff.

Back in March, 
RMIT NTEU members already voted overwhelmingly in favour of escalating our industrial action with a week long strike, teaching bans and more, and we don't take these actions lightly. Please register and come to the next all-member meeting on Tuesday 30 April and here about the next steps in our campaign for a new deal at RMIT with better pay and conditions.

What: All-member meeting
When: Tuesday 30 April, 12.30pm
