What’s in a Name? General and/or professional – but definitely not ‘non-academic’

http://www.nteu.org.au//var/files/thumbs/a780532dd116f8da145bac8c4c7961bc_e7e2a056b6c5e8722188bac5fbb3550f_w80_.jpgBy Matthew McGowan. How often do you hear NTEU representatives mumble ‘General – oh and/or Professional staff’? For our first two decades, the NTEU had two major sections of membership – academic and general. Academics are easily identified as members of that profession and classified as such.

Over time, allied sections of other unions in universities joined us along with research and other allied institutions’ staff. More...

On a more positive note, it has been fantastic to see the level of protests in Australia at the proposed fee changes and budget cuts. More...

The research was compiled in response to changes outlined in the 2014-15 Federal Budget, specifically the decision to extend funding for Commonwealth supported places (CSPs) to non-university public and private providers, including for-profit provides. More...
