NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY STAFF WANT BETTER PAY

Leaflets in cafes around Fremantle by the National Tertiary Education Union-NTEU show that there is a bit of controversy at Notre Dame University about wages, superannuation and academic freedom.

Notre Dame Australia-NDA is highly rated by students and the Fremantle campus is in one of Australia’s most beautiful cities, but it appears that staff are not happy with their wages and conditions.

There is a demand for a 3% pay rise and the NTEU claims that NDA staff get paid significantly less than the staff at other Australian universities.

The union has also asked Notre Dame for an increase in superannuation from 12% to 17%, because all other staff at Australian universities receive the 17%.

Last but not least NDA has refused any calls for protection of academic and intellectual freedom.

NTEU wants Notre Dame Australia to implement an equitable workload management so that academic staff can regulate their working hours.
