NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY STAFF WANT BETTER PAY

Posted in city of fremantle, education, employment, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on July 28, 2019

 

 

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.

FREO’S CEO NOW RESPONSIBLE FOR ARTS&CULTURE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, festivals, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on May 20, 2019

 

The new City of Fremantle job advertisement for a new Manager Arts&Culture reveals that the department has been moved and is no longer part of the Community Development Department.

The next Manager Arts&Culture will be reporting directly to CEO Phil StJohn and no longer to Director Fiona Hodges. I hear the CEO is now in charge of Arts&Culture at Fremantle.

I questioned several months ago what was going on as Pete Stone suddenly left the position and Destry Puiashame who took over from him was encouraged to resign within a few months, although he had relocated his young family from Melbourne to Fremantle, obviously because he expected to be in the job for many years.

There have been many rumours and allegations I won’t mention here, but we will probably never find out what the real reasons for the resignations and changes are. It is a concern though in the City of Arts when the creatives at Freo City don’t feel appreciated and respected.

Who will be the next Arts&Culture manager and how long will she or he stay on? If you want the job go to the City of Fremantle website and see the details!

The traditional May Day parade marched through Fremantle and what a noisy, colourful and important event it is.

More than 2,000 people, including WA Premier Mark McGowan attended the march while many watched on.

The Maritime Union of Australia diverted from the normal route to pay respect at the Kings Square fountain to Tom Edwards, a port worker who was killed 100 years ago.

NEW FEMALE CEO FOR FREO CHAMBER

Posted in business, chamber of commerce, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on March 6, 2019

 

When is an exclusive not an exclusive I wonder, because while I have had confirmed that the next CEO of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce is going to be a woman who is a resident of Fremantle, I have not been able to find out who she is.

There is a rumour that it is an East Fremantle lady who works in the fashion industry, and while I do have her name I am reluctant to publish it without having confirmation from the FCC.

Stay tuned! 😨
