The dispute describes the type of underpayment of casual academic staff and proposes, among other things, that the university: an NTEU Fightback UWA leaflet stated that the UWA Vice Chancellor and the NTEU National Directorate had “sold the modification of the company agreement to avoid job cuts”, but that the clauses of the EAV explicitly allowed “forced dismissals, the protection of casual workers is weak and not campaigning, unless these casual workers can demonstrate a “reasonable expectation” of the work in progress. Andrew Broertjes, led the student awareness campaign on the emergency of casual workers at UWA through a “Staff Working Conditions are Student Learning Conditions” campaign. NTEU UWA Branch President, Dr. Sanna Peden, regularly sent weekly updates to members asking them to send evidence and spread the word to their colleagues. The union contacted casual members directly and, with the help of the UWA Sessional Staff Association, reached out to as many casual members as possible. The UWA Guild`s Pelican magazine also published an article about casualization on campus, which helped raise students` awareness of job insecurity among their tutors and teachers. Many of the UWA senior managers responsible for the design and implementation of the renewal plan have left their roles at the university. Professor Paul Johnson (Vice-Chancellor), Sandra Ventre (Director of Human Resources), Paula Langley (Executive Director of Human Resources), Pranay Lodhiya (Executive Director of Corporate Services) and Michael Chaney (Chancellor) all left. Shortly after the NTEU filed the dispute over the occasional payment, it was announced that Vice Chancellor Dawn Freshwater would also leave the UWA next year to take the reins of the University of Auckland. . . .
