This week, hundreds of staff and students joined picket lines at the University as part of an industrial action by the NTEU.
Hundreds of staff and students mobilised to fight for better working conditions in a strike organised by the NTEU.
In an email to USU Staff, CEO Andrew Mills has distanced the USU's operations from the Board's call for the organisation to shut down in support of next week’s staff strike.
Individual staff members are under no legal obligation to inform an employer of an intention to strike, contrary to what Jagose’s email may suggest.
USyd staff are fighting the corporate university — students must support them and attend the strikes in week 11 and 13.
The strikes represent a step forward in the NTEU’s enterprise bargaining negotiations.
