Susan has been an academic member of staff at Wintec in the IT school for 12  years. She has taken an active role in the local branch, holding the position of Branch President for the last 3 years.

She is looking forward to being a member of the NWC for the next two years.  She is particularly concerned about the increase in casual positions in the ITP sector and the impact these sorts of roles have on the career advancement options available to women.  She intends to assist the NWC to develop resources that will inform women of their options when entering the tertiary workforce.

Tracey believes feminism is an issue for us all. A fair and just society values all its people. Unions provide a structure for workers to impact on our society and make changes for the benefit of us all. Tracey is happy to bring your concerns/issues to the NWC, a national committee of the TEU.

I work at the Faculty of Architecture and Design, as a First Year Workshop Technician. This means I have a multi layered job of teaching, advising and the safety of students in the first year of their degrees. Our average enrolment for the first year is 525-550 students which by the end of the year drops to 490- 520ish

I also have studied 4 years part time for my BA, Design and worked at the university for 8 years concurrently. I am a qualified, Carpenter/Joiner, with Trade Certificate; working in the trade for 26 years. I am married to a Navy Man and have two full on boys 9 and 13.

I have been part of the union for 5 years; I have become a more active member in the last 3years as I have gained more confidence within the university environment. I am now our branch president for the coming year and was one of the team for the last round of bargaining.

To do a Tui beer advert:

Anyone can do Tertiary Administration.

Yeah right! I have take an even more active role within the TEU by becoming part of the National women’s committee; Te kahurangi māreikura.

As a member I would to like promote the role of general staff women as important members of tertiary education staff especially as a majority are in administration where they are commonly seen as expendable and readily replaceable.
